KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA/GURGAON, INDIA: Ranbaxy Malaysia Sdn Bhd has been allocated the site for setting up its Greenfield manufacturing facility in Malaysia. The company signed a ‘letter of offer’ agreement with Kulim Hi Tech Park (KHTP), a wholly owned state agency and industrial park that houses various other leading industries, located at Kulim in the state of Kedah, Malaysia.

The Greenfield facility with an investment of $35 million will provide employment to over 200 people. This will be Ranbaxy’s second manufacturing plant in Malaysia. The new facility will manufacture dosage forms including tablets and capsules primarily in the cardiovascular, anti diabetic, anti-infective and gastrointestinal segments.

“Ranbaxy established its foothold in Malaysia three decades back and since then has been offering high quality, affordable generic medicines to the Malaysian healthcare system. The new Greenfield facility reinforces our long term commitment. In addition to serving the local market, the new facility will also export products to the ASEAN markets, Middle East, Europe, Sri Lanka, China and other selected nations,” said T Jeyabalan Thangarajah, Managing Director, Ranbaxy Malaysia.
