The 15,000sq ft laboratory, which is being built in Mumbai and due to be operational by 2012, is designed to provide local manufacturers with a wide range of analytical development and quality control testing services.

SGS executive VP Anne Hays said: “This investment is part of the three-year growth plan for SGS India and the Life Science Services division.

With the growth of the pharmaceutical market in India, and specifically Mumbai, SGS takes this initiative to be in physically closer to our customers, while maintaining the quality we deliver, building our service offerings, and expanding our global network of laboratories​.”

SGS will initially employ 20 staff at the facility but plans to hire an additional 90 people over the next five years.
