Production of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients

Production of active pharmaceutical ingredients is an important field in the activity of EGIS PLC (and its legal predecessors). As a result of professional experience accumulated through the efforts of the last decades and the continuous modernization of the facilities, competitiveness of the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients has been maintained as it is well proved by successful exports and the good results of the national and international official controls.

At present, in this field of activity approximately 50 different active pharmaceutical ingredients and their intermediates are produced a year. The wide scale of products can be characterized by the gradual renewal and replacement of individual products.

Thorough grounding and commitment of people working in this strategic field are an important part of the complex professional culture belonging to EGIS.
