Ferron Par Pharmaceuticals was established to support the growth of Dexa Group, by providing enhanced production, development, and marketing capabilities. Within four years of inception, its rapid growth saw it listed among the 20 largest pharmaceutical operations in Indonesia. [IHPA+IPA 2005; IMS Audit 2005]
Ferron collaborates with partners across the world, and harnesses an extensive API-sourcing network as well as over 50 years of experience from the larger Dexa Group. Its facility has been approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA, the United Kingdom), Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA, Australia), and the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM, Germany).
Ferron has leveraged these assets to build a strong presence in Europe.
The name Ferron was inspired by the Latin ferreus (“made of iron”), as a reminder of the inner strength of the company’s values. The three sides of Ferron’s triangular logo represent its three core priorities: care, quality, and innovation.
By leveraging its extensive API sourcing network, Ferron has successfully implemented highly localized strategies and strengthened access to its medicines across the Southeast region. Ferron started delivering products to the United Kingdom in 2008, just seven years after its inception. Since then, it has continually strengthened its presence in Europe, with most of its products being delivered to clients in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Poland.
Ferron is an established global provider for sterile- and solid-manufacturing of regular, non-beta lactam, non-cephalosporins, and non-oncology products. It has built end-to-end competency spanning co-development, warehouse management, contract manufacturing, and analysis.
