The Madras-based Amrutanjan manufactures bulk drugs and drug intermediateslike theophylline, based on in-house research. Three plants have been set up in the Alandur industrial belt near Madras to produce these products. It recently entered into a joint venture with Welsh firm Cardiff Chemicals to manufacture pheromones (a type of agrochemicals) at Cuddalore. Pheromones have found wide application as pesticides and are used on cotton crops. Amrutanjan also has an agreement with a company in Philadelphia, US, to supply custom-made chemicals for exotic applications like the genetic manipulation of biological matter. It has introduced some new range of products like Pep Pill, Amrutanjan gripe water sans alcohol, Amrutanjan Maha Strong, etc. Plans are afoot to introduce analgesic and antipyretic tablets. The company also plans to launch sanitary napkins soon.
