LUPIN HAS BEEN BUILT ON THE BEDROCK OF CLOSE TO FIVE DECADES OF A QUALITY-DRIVEN AND CUSTOMER-CENTRIC MANUFACTURING ETHIC. WE HAVE GROWN AND EXPANDED OUR BUSINESS BY CONTINUOUSLY DEVELOPING AND BUILDING ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF OUR GLOBAL MANUFACTURING NETWORK. WE HAVE DONE THIS BY IMBIBING AND ASSIMILATING BEST PRACTICES AS LAID DOWN BY REGULATORS, INFUSING SYSTEMS, TECHNOLOGY AND MENTORING A DEDICATED WORKFORCE THAT HAS FOSTERED LEADERS FROM WITHIN.

Our sustained growth and leadership as a global formulations and a strong API powerhouse is a direct outcome of our unrelenting focus on manufacturing excellence and quality.

The philosophy is simple - drive continuous improvement and innovation, eliminate inefficiencies, facilitate teamwork and problem-solving and encourage lean manufacturing. This consistent discipline binds 18 world-class facilities spread across India, United States, Japan, Brazil and Mexico engineered to deliver affordable and quality products globally. Our manufacturing facilities are inspected and audited as per cGMP guidelines as laid down by leading regulatory authorities like the US FDA, World Health Organization (WHO), MHRA (UK), TGA (Australia), MHLW (Japan), ANVISA (Brazil) and MCC (South Africa), to name a few.

Lupin’s manufacturing network is ably backed by Lupin’s Global Supply Chain (GSC) that ensures that inputs reach our plants and our products reach customers ‘on-demand’ and ‘in-time’. Our fill ratios for the US are second to none and our ability to service our customers is the best in the industry, making Lupin a preferred and reliable supplier. A judicious procurement process is in place, ensuring on-time and in-full deliveries within budgeted costs. To mitigate supply dependency, continual de-risking projects are undertaken for seamless supply and cost optimization. Lupin’s manufacturing operations, supply chain and procurement are truly geared to support our global commercial plans.
