PMC Buys Isochem’s Pharma Business

13.12.2017 -

PMC Group France, a wholly owned subsidiary of US-based PMC Group International, has acquired the pharmaceuticals business of France’s Isochem for an undisclosed sum.

The business comprises research, product and process development capabilities as well as pilot-scale and full plant-scale production of drug intermediates and APIs for major companies worldwide.

Isochem operates three sites at Gennevilliers, Pithiviers and Vert-le-Petit, all within a 60-mile radius of Paris and audited by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as cGMP-compliant.

Going forward, the company will be known as PMC Isochem, operating as a wholly owned subsidiary of PMC Group France.

The acquisition follows the October purchase of Indian pharma Yegna Manojavam Drugs and Chemicals by PMC Group subsidiary, PMC YM-Pharma. The Indian company’s cGMP plant is claimed to be one of the largest fluoroquinolone drug manufacturing facilities in France.
