Hovione Buys Pfizer's Loughbeg API Facility

Pharma manufacturing needs to become lean and cost-effective and this is always a challenge. The outsourcing business model gives manufacturers a head start, as contractors can provide their services to any Innovator company for any product and thus benefit from lower risk, better utilization of facilities and scale. In addition the contractor can select those compounds that have a good fit with its plant's technical capabilities, in turn the pharma company can avoid the expensive plant modifications often required to manufacture these compounds. It is this ability to produce for anyone that will contribute to making compounds fast a
