In 2008 Ecan pharma group decided to expand yet again and build its own manufacturing facility. The plant facility is located in El Obour City, about 20 km away from Cairo. The total land area is approximately 16,000 m2. The initial stage for the plant is expected to utilize 50 percent of the land area. Ecan Pharma plant is scheduled to open its doors early 2012. We are currently registering over 50 new products with the Ministry of Health to be manufactured in the new plant. Careful thought has gone into choosing these products to meet rising market demands and to provide unique items that were previously not available in Egypt. The plant will also open for contract manufacturing to serve both the local and international markets.
