History

Ecan pharma group is a holding company for a group of companies in the pharmaceutical field that merged together in 2008.  MN Egypt was the first company of the group, originally founded in 1992 by Dr. Nadia Lotfy.

MN Egypt consists of two major departments; the first specializes in supplying the pharmaceutical industry in Egypt with quality Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs). Over the years the company acquired many agencies from around Europe and Asia and supplies to numerous pharmaceutical companies all over Egypt. The second department is involved in supplying the market with microbiology diagnostic systems.  For over ten years, MN Egypt has been the agent of Becton Dickinson a US based company ranked in fortune 500’s list.  Our area of focus is the industrial sector in the pharmaceutical industry; in addition we also have strong business relations with the food and beverage companies, governmental and regulatory agencies.  We are also currently in the process of acquiring other microbiology complimentary agencies to be able to serve our clients better.

In the mid 1990’s MN Egypt joined venture with a British pharmaceutical company to manufacture finished pharmaceutical products.  In recent years we had the aspiration and plan to build our own manufacturing plant. This idea was finally realized when Ecan Pharma was established in 2008. Since then Ecan pharma purchased the land in Obour city and is currently constructing a state of the art pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. The plant is scheduled for completion in early 2012.

With the merge of Ecan Pharma and MN Egypt, Ecan pharma group is now considered to be one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical companies in Egypt currently employing over 80 personnel and with the completion of the new plant expects to recruit an additional 300.
