Kaposvár, Hungary has a noteworthy, centuries-old tradition in pharmacy, pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution; and has been the regional center of the Hungarian pharmacy distribution network and small-scale pharmaceutical manufacturing for decades.
After the collapse of communism in 1989, a new era of pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution emerged in the town of Kaposvár, primarily focused on specialized pharmaceutical compositions supplied to pharmacies in the region.
In 2000, a new player appeared on the Hungarian pharmaceutical manufacturing scene: HGA Biomed Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Ltd. was founded, servicing a burgeoning market need for generic drug substances and fixed dose combinations.
Over the past two decades, HGA Biomed has established a notable presence in the realm of pharmaceutical contract manufacturing, collaborating with partners ranging from local Hungarian brands to top international pharmaceutical companies on a comprehensive range of services – from raw material sourcing to the pharmacy shelf, and everything in between.
