Debasish Roy, MD and Subhasish Roy, CEO, The United Engineering Company (UEC) spoke to Express Pharma about the current state of pharma packaging industry in the country
Today, after five decades in pharma-machinery manufacturing industry, how has UEC positioned itself?
In the last five decades, UEC has developed more than 30 kinds of indigenous pharmaceutical machinery and we are continuously upgrading ourselves. From the early 60’s of the last century, UEC has become a major house of the import substitute in pharma machinery though we are much aware of high-speed machine from the first world country and also stiff competition from low valued machines from our neighbouring countries, UEC machines still hold their own position. In India, we are considered to be one of the best and trusted brands in the industry. ‘UNITED’ machines also cut a niche for itself in the international markets. We are growing as a brand day-by-day.
In the Indian pharma industry, automatic ampoule filling and sealing machine means UEC. Which machines are in your product basket for small volume and large volume parenteral manufacturers?
