Fabupharm Products, a 100 per cent Namibian pharmaceutical manufacturer is now able to manufacture registered medicinal products.

The company announced in a media statement issued on Friday that it has received an Official Manufacturing GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) License from the Namibian Medicines Regulatory Council (NMRC).

Managing Director of Fabupharm Products Fanie Badenhorst said the company is currently the only Namibian manufacturing facility to produce medicinal products under license from the NMRC.

“All documentation had to be reviewed and updated to comply with the most modern standards of manufacturing. We were awarded 20 products during the current Government tender period. These products will be delivered to the Government’s Central Medical Stores (CMS), which will be distributed to all the state hospitals and clinics across the country,” explained Badenhorst.

In order to increase its operational capacity, Fabupharm invested in new modern packaging equipment such as a shrink tunnel; a double-sided labeling machine; and a new more efficient labeling and printing machine.

In addition, a new 8.5 ton truck has been acquired to increase the number of products delivered to the CMS.

The company also added more employees and trained them according to the latest GMP regulations.

In March 2013, the Fabupharm Products management team visited the Propak Africa Expo in Johannesburg.

Through this event, the company could add new and exciting ideas in terms of packaging materials for the future.

New products will be launched in the near future such as an herbal antiseptic ointment known as “Groensalf”; !deal Baby Bottom Balm; Suplimax Probiotic; Umckagon Capsules and Syrup; Fabupharm Men’s Lotion and a Tissue oil.

Fabupharm Products was registered in 1989 and started to manufacture certain products and repackaging some oils in 1990. Since the commencement of the pharmaceutical factory it has shown significant growth. Today, it is distributing products to retailers and pharmacies nation-wide and delivering pharmaceutical products to Government through the official tender process. The manufacturing plant is regularly being inspected by the Registrar of Medicines of the Ministry of Health and Social Services.
