In 2012, Eurofarma gave one more step to amplify its reach in Latin America by acquiring Merck Sharp & Dohme's factory in Colombia.
Eurofarma's plans include, besides manufacturing MSD's products, the commercialization of their private brand in the country. The company is searching for new commercial partners and manufacturing contracts, aiming to improve the factory's capacity and, at the same time, dossier submitting has already been started in this country.
The factory bought by Eurofarma is located at Bogotá, Colombia's federal district, and has an area of approximately 22,000 square meters. Certified by Invima (National Food and Drug Administration for Colombia) – a Colombian organization similar to Anvisa (National Sanitary Surveillance Agency for Brazil) in Brazil – this factory manufactures medicine in powder, cream, injectable, liquid and solid forms.
