Hikal – Standing tall amidst changing paradigms

Hikal's Research & Technology centre in Pune, India

Hikal is a reliable long-term outsourcing partner and supplier of key active ingredients and intermediates to companies in the Pharmaceuticals, Animal Health, Biotech, Crop Protection and Specialty Chemical industries.

The fine chemicals landscape has been continuously evolving over the last three decades. Today, we experience yet again a major paradigm shift in our industry. One of the recent triggers has been Covid, accelerating ongoing trends such as consolidation and balancing supply chains, big pharma companies intensifying their outsourcing activities, different kinds of drugs and requirements for APIs driven by personalized medicine, biologicals and recently, oligonucleotides such as mRNA vaccines.

Being a major player in the Pharmaceuticals and Crop Protection global industry, Hikal is actively driving fundamental change. Since its foundation in 1988 by our Executive Chairman, Jai Hiremath, Hikal has come a long way and defines itself today as a technology and customer orientation driven provider. Our pristine track record of 33 years, a strong R&D capability and focus on technology with regulatory compliance and good corporate governance has ensured long-standing sustainable business relationships with our customers, globally.

With a total reactor capacity of over 3800 m3 across five manufacturing facilities in India at Maharashtra (Taloja and Mahad), Gujarat (Panoli) and Bengaluru (Jigani) and a world-class Research & Technology centre at Pune, Hikal has successfully established a strong foothold in multiple businesses – Pharmaceuticals, Crop Protection, Animal Health, Food Ingredients and Specialty Chemicals.

Hikal is a leading manufacturer of intermediates and APIs with capability spanning from an R&D to a pilot scale, before gradually scaling up our capacity to the commercial stage. Our facilities have been inspected and certified by the Global Regulatory Authorities including the USFDA and we proudly stand out as one of the few Indian manufacturers that has an impeccable regulatory track record with the global authorities.

Sustainability has been a key priority for Hikal and we have always strived to have best-in-class EHS standards. We have undertaken various technology enabled initiatives to strengthen the Company’s journey towards driving sustainability, improving our customer experience and capitalizing on growth.
