Akums, the largest pharmaceutical contract manufacturing company, acquires the HP plant from Ankur Drugs And Pharma Ltd.

Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals Ltd, the largest pharmaceutical contract manufacturing company in India, recently acquired a facility from Ankur Drugs and Pharmaceuticals Limited. The facility acquired by Akums Drugs is one of the largest drug manufacturing plants in the country. With this acquisition, Akums will increase its production capabilities for general oral tablets and oral liquids. The planned capacities of the new facility are 6 billion units of tablets and 90 million units of oral fluids per year. This facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2022.

Founder, Promoter and Director of Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals, Shri Sandeep Jain says, “What adding this new facility to our existing network means is to intensify our continuous efforts to serve our customers efficiently and better serve the nation. At Akums, we are already leading the market in many areas and therefore we also know that there is still a long way to go. With this new facility at Nalagarh in Solan, Himachal Pradesh, we are trying to fill other capacity gaps in the pharmaceutical industry.

Founder, Promoter and Director of Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals, Shri Sanjeev Jain said: “In 2021, our supplies accounted for approximately 12% of the total market. With this new acquisition of facilities in the state of Himachal Pradesh and our previous acquisition in Kotdwar, Uttarakhand in August 2021, we have further strengthened our total capacity. This expansion is a step towards reaching our target of 20% market share. Operations at our factory in Kotdwar started recently, while our new factory in Himachal Pradesh is expected to start operations by December 2022.”
Apart from these changes, Akums had also acquired three API facilities near Chandigarh in January 2021, all of which contribute to building its capacity and efficient upstream integrated supply chain to strengthen its market leadership position in India, as Akums manufactures about 12% of all drugs consumed in the country.
