 23rd February 2010 Helvoet Pharma

Helvoet Pharma to build production facility in India Helvoet Pharma is to build a new modern production facility in India. This new plant will begin operation in 2012 and will supply the local pharmaceutical industry and globally operating pharmaceutical customers with rubber components for primary packaging for parenteral pharmaceutical and diagnostic drugs.

With this facility, Helvoet Pharma is further strengthening its market position in India and establishing its first operational platform in Asia to further capitalise on its worldwide leadership in pharmaceutical rubber formulations.

Helvoet Pharma's decision to build its own manufacturing plant in India has been made to leverage the country's position as the centre of excellence for generic and branded pharmaceutical products. India has the highest number of US FDA approved plants outside the USA and is expected to become a significant healthcare consumer market.

This brand-new plant fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities built to Helvoet Pharma’s high standards will be operational in 2012. Over the next two years, Helvoet Pharma will spend some 14 million Euros. Construction work for the greenfield production facility will start in the third quarter of this year. The new plant will be located near Pune (Maharashtra state) in a newly developed industrial zone with a secure energy supply, good transport connections and access to trained personnel. If required, the new facility can be expanded modularly in the future.
