Hudson Pharma (Private) Limited

Hudson Pharma (Private) Limited is incorporated in Pakistan on May 05, 2010 under the Companies Ordinance, 1984 as a private company limited by shares. Hudson Pharma aims to provide hospitals and health institutions in Pakistan with injectable medicines in polyethylene ampoules and bottles that are more sterile, easier and safer to administer, and cost competitive versus the current glass based competition. We intend on capturing a first mover advantage by being the first in Pakistan to market injectables packaged in plastic. In comparison to other dosage forms, injectables have less competition locally and globally given the higher barriers to entry. We believe the transition to plastic will be swift in Pakistan given our view that all stakeholders involved in the administration of the injection are incentivized to switch.
