New Manufacturing Site to include GMP block with Clean Room
Vasant is currently setting up a dedicated green-field project in a 16 acre site to meet the growing needs
of our current customers and to cater to new customers. The new site is in a Special Economic Zone
developed by Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation at Atchutapuram,
near Vishakapatnam, in Andhra Pradesh, India.
The site is in the PCPIR (Petroleum, Chemical and Petrochemical Investment Region),
which is a result of an initiative by Indian government to harness the natural
advantages enjoyed by the region for the growth of chemical industry. The site
has the potential to quadruple its current capacity to manufacture Pharma
intermediates, Specialty chemicals and Performance Chemicals.
The new facilities are expected to go on-stream by February 2011.
This production site will include GMP facilities to manufacture
advanced intermediates and key starting raw materials
for pharma and bulk drug industries.
