AustarPharma is a drug delivery and technology based pharmaceutical company which focuses on the development and manufacturing of high technical barrier drug products. We offer our partners flexible and integrated turn-key product solutions ranging from prototype development to cGMP commercial manufacturing and product sales. We have helped many pharmaceutical companies world-wide to develop and manufacture both ANDA and NDA drug products. In 2009 AustarPharma acquired from Abbott Laboratories a cGMP research, commercial manufacturing and testing facility in Edison, NJ. This location is now the home of AustarPharma’s corporate headquarters. The acquisition significantly increased our capacity for technology based exploration, formulation and analytical development and manufacturing of scale-up, exhibition, clinical and commercial batches. The facility has been audited by the FDA, MHRA and many pharmaceutical companies and is capable of producing two (2) billion units of solid oral dosage forms per year. We also have a small manufacturing suite suitable for cGMP clinical supply manufacturing of high potency drugs. We have been granted a license by the DEA to manufacture controlled drug products (CII-V). Today, AustarPharma is also engaged in the sales and marketing of finished generic drug products, developed internally or secured through partnerships or acquisitions. We have the experience, relationships and infrastructure to bring different pharmaceutical dosage forms to all classes of trade in the U.S. pharmaceutical market. We are committed to bring quality and cost effective drug products and reliable delivery to our valued customers.
