The plant will provide direct and indirect employment to approximately 350+ individuals. This US-FDA, EU-GMP, WHO-Geneva Compliant Pharmaceutical Formulation facility is housed across approximately 1,50,000 square feet, with a capacity of 1 billion tablets per annum, 500 million capsules per annum, and 27 million liquid injections per annum.
The plant’s proposed completion is scheduled for March 2024 and will be abundantly equipped to cater to the demands of global markets. Adhering to global standards for products and services, production from its planned facility will find immediate traction from established demand in existing markets. The robust production will allow backward integration of its supply chain and is expected to start by June 2024.
On occasion of the groundbreaking ceremony, Mr. Ashish Maheshwari, Managing Director, Balaxi Pharmaceuticals Limited, stated, “For us, the plant commission in Telangana is much more than just a facility, it is a true milestone for Balaxi Pharmaceuticals that will enable us to move from semi regulated to regulated markets. Balaxi will establish a manufacturing ecosystem that affords better control, improves regulatory processes and reduces time to market for new product launches.”
He further added, ”This facility will also drive backward integration of the supply chain to these countries, currently outsourced through contract manufacturing relationships. It will produce higher efficacy products that enjoy greater acceptance and enhanced profit margins. From the operations standpoint, over the medium term, through this facility, we see several new market opportunities opening up for our product lines.”
Mr. Swaminathan, MD of Spectrum Pharma Consultants also informed that “the entire timeline and milestones of the project have been meticulously planned and the project will be ready by March 2024.”
