On September 15, the Pharmasyntez-Tyumen hormonal plant under construction in Tyumen was visited by Yuri Borisov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Yakushev, Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Ural Federal District, and Alexander Moor, Tyumen Region Governor.
During the excursion, the guests were shown that the plant was almost ready for launch: the main construction work had been completed and equipment commissioning was under way.
The plant plans to produce over 30 international non-proprietary names of hormonal drugs in various dosage forms. Seven production lines will be able to produce about 1 billion packs per year.
The volume of investments in the plant is estimated at over 4 billion rubles. More than 300 new jobs will be created and highly qualified specialists from all over the world are already engaged in work.
Such production volume will suffice to replace up to half of the volume of the Russian market of hormonal drugs which are predominantly imported into Russia from abroad today. There are no analogues of such facility in Russia today.
