Two technology-intensive developments, carried out with state subsidies, were completed at Egis Pharmaceuticals PLC’s Körmend site (Hungary). The investments were inaugurated by Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and by the company’s CEO, Dr. István Hodász on 15 October. In addition to a new packaging plant, Egis has also established a plant with special knowledge and technology requirements, typically suitable to manufacture oncology products. Thus, Egis is now able to implement all value-creating processes within the field of oncology, from development to active ingredient and finished product manufacturing.
In parallel to our mission, we serve people with all our knowledge and skills, so that they can live a long and healthy life.
