New additional facility for drug production using fine organic synthesis are under construction in Kaliningrad
New drug production facility are under construction in Bagrationovsk, Kaliningrad region. Pharmcontract GC is a general contractor of the project, which connected with building of new facilities for Infamed K on turnkey basis.
Pharmaceutical company Infamed K decided to build new facility for different drug manufacturing using organic synthesis in summer 2017. Ivan Kirichenko a deputy director of research activity department of Infamed K said, that their company discussed different ways: the most simple way was to use third-party facilities to produce additional drugs. But it is too risky way because of innovation developments and “know how” that company has.
It is necessary to realize that drug production in China and India is not cheap for now days. Labor costs in Asian countries became higher as well as necessity to keep ecological standards. And it is not good for us to depend on the fidelity of third party and currency fluctuations. More of that, new regulatory rules became more rigorous and it is necessary to get MINPROMTORG conclusion on basis of GMP inspectorate opinion (State Institute of Drugs and Good Practices). It is connected with additional risks and material costs.
Taking into account that Infamed K are interested in construction of own facilities for drug manufacturing and their desire to produce not only their own products, but to provide contract manufacturing services for non-domestic manufacturers, distribution department of the leading chemical and pharmaceutical holding Pharmcontract GC chose the best instrumentation decision with technological equipment of Switzerland, German and Italian manufacturers, that allowed to synthesize a wild range of AFI (including contract manufacturing), about 10 tons of substances per year. The end of building will be in 2018 year.
Investor and general contractor are going to build pharmaceutical warehouse class A for storing 10 tons of products in accordance with GDP. Possibility to organize own production of pharmaceutical packaging on the territory of Industrial Business Park – Ecobaltic are under discussion. Pharmcontract GC has interesting offers concerning Track&Trace systems implementation, that allowed to control all production and delivery stages of drugs starting from its’ packaging on production site to the end user.
Consequently, construction of such production facility allowed to make contribution to medicinal independence of our country, to put down risks of using more cheap medicinal products that are not have a good quality. Building of additional production facilities means that quantity of workplaces will grow in future (about 600 additional workplaces in town with 7000 of habitants). Today Infamed K is a local economic mainstay of Bagrationovsk with more than 300 workpalces.
Pharmaceutical company Infamed K was established in 2014 year and became the first manufacturer in Kaliningrad region, that produce unique medical product named Miramistin 0,01% and Okomistin eye drops. Total capacity is 32 million tons per year. It is a full cycle manufacturer starting from AFI synthesis to final product.
