In August 2013, as part of its global business strategy to complete its presence across the entire health care value chain, Vivimed completed the acquisition of a US FDA inspected 1.2 billion SOD per annum manufacturing facility at Alathur near Chennai, Tamilnadu. This facility earlier belonged to the US pharma MNC Actavis (Watson) and has received US FDA approval 4 times in April 2007, April 2009, Oct 2011 and most recently in Sep 2013. The plant manufacturing capacity can be expanded to 5 billion SOD per annum. This eliminates 3 to 4 years of lead time to build a green field project of this quality and getting the regulatory approvals.

This strategic acquisition gives Vivimed immediate access to regulated markets such as US and European union. US is the largest generic market in the world. This also enables Vivimed to complete the health vare value chain by providing forward integration synergies for Vivimed’s existing API business.

With the acquisition of the Alathur facility and Finoso, Vivimed will now develop its own formulation dossiers, DMFs and ANDAs and start building a filing pipeline with the Alathur facility as the manufacturing site.
