Company History and Structure
The company was founded in 1991 as Polypharma Import Export GmbH to develop trade relations previously established in various countries in Africa and the Middle East, based on the founder’s hands-on experience in projects in Mali, Tunisia, Burundi, Syria and elsewhere.
In 1993, the company became Polypharma Technologies & Sciences GmbH, expanding its activities to include the development of generic drug dossiers and DMFs. Over the following years it developed dossiers for a variety of products including dry, paste and semi-solid dosage forms, as well as suspensions, syrups and injectables before registering its first Polypharma dossiers in 1996.
In 2000, it obtained approval for commercialization of Narcotics and Precursors (category 1), swiftly progressed to create dossiers for dual and triple antiarrhythmic & cardiovascular therapies, as well as anti-diabetic drugs. In 2005, it expanded its portfolio to include cardiovascular dossiers and the following year developed its first dossiers for ophthalmic and nasal solutions as well as new technical dossiers for capsules, with the first successful creation of β-lactam antibiotics in powder form for oral suspension.
Following further expansions into neuroleptics as suppositories and tablets, corticoid creams, quinolone antibiotic tablets and veterinary dossiers, Polypharma made its debut as an exhibitor at the CPhI Worldwide expo in 2013.
Between 2018 and 2020, Polypharma played a crucial role in establishing a new pharmaceutical factory in Algeria, while simultaneously focusing on development of dossiers for dry forms, such as tablets, capsules and dry powder inhalers.
The company celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2021 with more than 150 successfully developed dossiers in-house and registered by partners, now including the majority of available pharmaceutical forms.
Throughout its history, the company has remained based in Hamburg in Northern Germany.
