This plant was established in 1994 and is the largest site of the PharmaZell Group with a headcount of 218. Furthermore, the location at Chennai is PharmaZell‘s first production site outside of Germany. Originally, the plant had been built to produce amino acid derivates. During the last years however, the facilities were expanded to perform also complex syntheses. Today the plant produces various APIs and intermediates. Furthermore in 2003, PharmaZell has established a development group here that focuses on developing generic APIs. In April 2008, this department was relocated to Vizag, where a larger and even more effective development center is now in operation.
This site, too, has been audited by the FDA and German authorities for compliance with GMP regulations. More information
