Chennai, India

PharmaZell (India) Pv. Ltd. was constructed as a greenfield site in 1995 in the Special Economic Zone of the Madras Export Processing Zone (MEPZ). It was initially built as a 100% affiliate of the German site to produce amino acids and their derivatives using water based chemistry only.

Due to its location close to the International Airport of Chennai and one of the largest harbors of India as well as easy access to a pool of well trained people of the mega polis of Chennai the site, however, has developed hugely since then and handles now a wide range of chemistry on an area three times as large as at the beginning. It is definitely one of the key pillars in the PharmaZell group manufacturing products from smallest scale in the kilo lab up to products with many hundreds of tons.
