Lupin’s journey began in India, when Dr Desh Bandhu Gupta (fondly called DBG) established the company in 1968. From one facility in Aurangabad in 1979, the company now has 11 state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities across the country. Scientists and R&D personnel at the company’s two research centres in Pune and Aurangabad leverage cutting-edge technology to provide unique solutions, including those in the field of high quality affordable biosimilars. Along with the commercial enterprise, DBG also founded the Lupin Human Welfare & Research Foundation, which promotes holistic rural development in India.
