The Production Plant of Laboratorios Richmond is located in the Pilar Industrial Park, 60 km from the City of Buenos Aires. In a 6-hectares plot of land, it has an area of 5,600 m2 dedicated to the production of tablets and capsules, specifically complex and high added value antiretroviral products. The construction of the plant required a total investment of around U$S 14 million.
The concept - It is a highly flexible, not segregated, multiproduct plant. The production of solids is performed by independent unit processes that allow simultaneous operation without risk of cross contamination: wet and dry granulation, compression, coating, encapsulation and conditioning (blistering and packing).
The capacity - In a first stage are produced about 100 million tablets and capsules annually. Once new markets are penetrated, the plant is ready to incorporate new production units and increase 4 times its capacity.
Compliance with High Quality Standards - The plant has the latest technologies and meets the international standards required for the production of pharmacologic products according to PIC, EMA (European Union) and is prepared to certify US-FDA. It has been classified according to the criteria of quality risk management and is included in the ISO 9001:2008 certification. It also complies with the Industrial Hygiene and Safety Regulations and with the environmental criteria to achieve the ISO 14000 certification, standard that is planned to be certified in the near future.
