Thanks to the implementation of investment projects in the pharmaceutical industry, namely the development of the plant of OOO Pharmasyntez-Tyumen, the Tyumen region becomes a major hub of medicine production.
Construction work for the Pharmasyntez company hormonal drug plant will start in the region soon. This project is an import-substitution one in the purest sense, as this area of Russian market is currently dominated by foreign companies. 97% of hormonal drugs used in Russia are purchased abroad. There are no such projects implemented or being implemented, not only in our country but also in the entire former Soviet Union.
Investments in the plant construction are estimated at 3.3 billion Rubles; its launch is scheduled for 2020. The company intends to produce about 30 kinds of hormonal drugs here.
In 2015, at one of the meetings with Vladimir Yakushev, Governor of the Tyumen region, the company presented its future project for reconstruction and modernization of YugraPharm plant purchased by the company in Tyumen. A modernization of IV solutions workshop was performed in short order. The volume of production increased threefold. In addition, a solid dosage form workshop was opened at the plant, a warehouse and water treatment facilities were reconstructed and the production of type II diabetes treatment drugs was established. The product range was expanded and the amount of employees in the Tyumen company branch was almost doubled.
The next stage of the company development was the decision to implement an audacious project for hormonal drug production. At the end of 2017, Governor Vladimir Yakushev and the President of GK Pharmasyntez signed a Cooperation Agreement between the Tyumen region government and the company for implementation of this investment project, extremely significant for the Russian Federation and the Tyumen region. The most advanced production is being established, employing the cutting-edge global technology subject to the requirements of Russian and international GMP standards.
“Both import substitution and introduction of new technology are among our priority directions. The regional government is interested in emergence of new investors and is ready to provide them with integrated governmental support. We are extremely open for domestic investors as well, should they wish to expand production and create new enterprises and sectors of regional industry,” said the head of the region.
