GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Pharmaceutical recorded a total biotech sales revenue of Rs 123.34 crore in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010. Vaccines has been a key focus area for GSK in the Indian market and it holds 51 percent market share in the Indian vaccine market. Andrew Witty, Global CEO, GSK on his visit to India in in March 2010, said, “India itself is a key priority for GSK itself. This is  one of the  great emerging economies  of the world and will be a great economic story in the next 50 years.” Witty had specifically flown down to Nashik in order to dedicate the new albendazole manufacturing production facility, to the WHO global program to eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis (LF). He has pinned hopes that this would be the starting point and probably in the future he would hope to see more such manufacturing facilities here  in India. This new facility, built with an investment of Rs 15 million, will deliver an additional 300 million treatments of albendazole per year. It will double GSK’s annual manufacturing capacity for the LF program.
