The company manufactures generic pharmaceuticals and active pharmaceutical ingredients. The company’s area of activity includes six major therapeutic/product areas: antibiotics, anti-retrovirals, cardiovascular products, central nervous system products, gastroenterologicals, and anti-allergics.[citation needed] The company markets these products in over 125 countries.[citation needed] Its marketing partners include AstraZeneca[1] and Pfizer.[2]

Company[edit]

The company commenced operations in 1988-89 with a single unit manufacturing Semi-Synthetic Penicillin (SSP) at Pondicherry. Aurobindo Pharma became a public company in 1992 and listed its shares in the Indian stock exchanges in 1995. In addition to being the market leader in Semi-Synthetic Penicillins[citation needed], it has a presence in key therapeutic segments such as neurosciences, cardiovascular, anti-retrovirals, anti-diabetics, gastroenterology and cephalosporins, among others.

Aurobindo Pharma features among the top 10 companies in India in terms of consolidated revenues.[citation needed] Aurobindo exports to over 125 countries across the globe with more than 70% of its revenues derived out of international operations.

In 2014, Aurobindo purchased the struggling Western European operations of Actavis.[3]
