Global Product Supply

With over 120 years of pharmaceutical industry experience, we are a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and Finished Dosage Forms (FDFs).

We invest heavily in both API and FDF capabilities, which means that we control the entire supply chain for most of our products. In addition to this, our in-house production capabilities are often backed up by trusted CMO capacities to create robust supply.

We are a customer and patient focused organization and we aim to provide the quality anti-infective products, offer world-class delivery services and meet the demands of the entire product supply chain.

Our expert teams are also dedicated to managing the needs of our customers, directing operations from our own distribution hubs or integrated 3PLs to ensure timely supply, enabling us to offer the highest level of agility to our customers.
