Brief company history
The history of this drug-making company begins in 1959 when Doctor Habil Khorakiwala purchased Worli Chemical Works enterprise. In 1960, he restructured it into a pharmaceutical company.
The company continuously expanded through the acquisitions of other smaller pharma companies, laboratories, and research centers including the ones situated outside of the company’s home country. For instance, the company acquired Wallis Laboratory in United Kingdome and Merind Company in India in 1998; in 2003, the company acquired CP Pharmaceuticals, UK; in 2004, Wockhardt Pharmaceuticals purchased Espharma GmbH, Germany; in 2006 the new acquisitions of Dumex India, and Pinewood Laboratory in Ireland were made. The latest acquisitions were made in 2007 and are Morton Grove Company, US, and Negma, France. Following the last acquisitions, the founder of the company resigned from the president’s post and proposed his soon as a replacement.
Wockhardt goods and services
The concern specializes in the bulk creation of active pharmaceutical ingredients, generic medications, vaccines, biopharmaceutical formulations, branded finished dosage products, and finished dosage forms for other companies as a contract manufacturer.
Besides developing and manufacturing goods, the concern has also created a network of hospitals in India that render specialized high-quality care in the areas of heart diseases, orthopedics, neurological diseases, gastrointestinal tract diseases, urological diseases, aesthetics surgery, and non-invasive surgeries. Wockhardt Pharmaceuticals opened its first hospital in 1990 and now has nine hospitals across India.
Manufacturing capacities of the concern
The drug-maker has fourteen facilities in total that are manufacturing pharma and biopharma formulations, APIs, and vaccines. The factories work for the own company’s brands and as a contractor manufacturer for other companies.
The company has the capacity to produce medications in all possible forms: tablets, capsules, powders, sachets, liquids, suspensions, creams, ointments, gels, SVP, LVP, PFS, ophthalmic solutions, lyophilized products, injectable solutions and powders, solutions for intravenous infusions, and vaccines.
Since the company is clearly targeted on the international markets of the developed countries, it has heavily invested in the update of the existing facilities and their adaptation to the strictest international norms. Currently, all of the Wockhardt Pharmaceuticals facilities are approved by the US FDA, UK MHRA and are EMEA compliant (approved for the markets of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa).
Besides the standard products, the company’s advanced biotechnological plant in Aurangabad has six new production facilities for biopharmaceutical goods and recombinant formulations.
With the increasing need for contract production, the company proceeds to upgrade its plants and further invests in new units and procedures. For instance, the recently launched modern lyophilization unit at Shendra factory is the first fully-automated facility in Asia. The plant is able to produce high volumes of highest-quality injectable products without the participation of people. There is also another plant in Aurangabad that is engaged in the production of innovational nanoparticles.

Our online drugstore product range is continuously updated. Today, we offer you the following Wockhardt Pharmaceuticals drugs:
- Aldomet (Methyldopa) is a hypotensive medication that affects the central mechanisms of blood pressure regulation. Methyldopa is converted into alpha-methylnoradrenaline, which stimulates the alpha2-adrenoreceptors of the presynaptic membrane of the neurons of the vasomotor center of the medulla oblongata and inhibits sympathetic pulsation to the vessels. The medication is appointed for the treatment of hypertension of mild to moderate severity. It can be found in our Blood pressure medications section.
- Capoten (Captopril) is one of the preparations of the group of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors that reduces the formation of angiotensin II from angiotensin I. Reducing angiotensin II leads to a direct decrease in the release of aldosterone. This reduces the total peripheral resistance, blood pressure, post- and preload on the heart. The medication is indicated in arterial hypertension (including renovascular), chronic heart failure (in complex therapy), left ventricular dysfunction after myocardial infarction in patients who are clinically stable, and for diabetic nephropathy. You can find this medication in our Blood pressure medications section.
