Agreements with big pharma

Some of Ranbaxy’s products have attracted the attention of big pharma companies and been the subject of key global agreements, for example in 1999 Bayer AG signed a development and marketing agreement with Ranbaxy for an oral once-daily formulation of Ciprofloxacin and many years later Ranbaxy signed a major R&D agreement with GSK. More recently Ranbaxy became a member of the Japanese Daiichi Sankyo Group; a deal that elevated the company’s status and allowed it to become a more recognized name in Japan.

Partnering has become second nature to Ranbaxy thanks to these high profile agreements; Ranbaxy look for partners who match its value, ethics and commitment to patients.

Contacting Ranbaxy for partnering

Ranbaxy can be contacted in relation to partnering through a number of channels. Here is a list of the most common channels:  

Partnering events: face to face contact is generally considered the most effective form of contact. Partnering events not only allow face to face contact but also contact with multiple companies for the price of one flight and hotel reservation. This benefit makes partnering events the most cost effective method of making personal introductions as a start point for partnering discussions.

See Current Partnering’s event calendar for details of forthcoming events. 

Direct contact: there are several sources of direct contact with Ranbaxy’ business development team

Phone: Picking up the phone and speaking with an individual is the best form of non-face to face contact as it allows your name and voice to be remembered and associated with an opportunity.

Email: Sending an email is another good way of making contact. Ideally, research the individual responsible for the therapy/technology area being targeted and get in touch. This page on the Ranbaxy website has the email address and name of the contact responsible for partnering.

LinkedIn: Business to business contact is increasingly taking place via LinkedIn, the global online networking channel.

Many of Ranbaxy’ business development executives have LinkedIn profiles and can be found by viewing the company’s profile. Visit Ranbaxy Linkedin Page  

Opportunity submission form: the least favourable channel but worth using if you do not have access to the other channels mentioned above.
