On April 27, 1936, East India Pharmaceutical Works Limited, one of the oldest pharmaceutical companies in India, was born. It started with the extraordinary vision of an extraordinary man, Late Ashoke Kumar Sen. Few years later, another visionary and also an extraordinary man, Late Hirendranath Dutt Gupta joined Late Ashoke Kumar Sen and led the company towards its present heights.
The objective was simple – to develop, through private entrepreneurship, an organization to synthesize modern drugs from basic chemicals and cater to the needs of the millions.
Depending solely on national resources and talents – East India Pharmaceutical Works Limited ( EIPWL ) now has emerged as a large pharmaceutical company with two manufacturing units, workforce of 1400 employees and an annual turnover of around Rs.1300 million.
