Pursuing quality and innovation

Customers working with Vitex Pharmaceuticals have access to extensive commercial capabilities, scale and capacity; a fully integrated, $100 million best-in-class Sydney facility; a wide spectrum of dosage forms manufactured on the latest state-of-art equipment; and a vision predicated on quality, innovation and integrity.

The acquisition of custom-designed, technologically advanced equipment in 2017 has been a core advantage for the company and a key component of its innovation strategy. Vitex specifically engineered additional efficiencies into the equipment to ensure greater output, leading to faster turnaround times and greater speed to market than its competition.

Vitex is exploring ways to speed the recruitment and training of new employees to meet strong export demand. With a current workforce of 130 people, the manufacturing plant is expected to grow its numbers to over 400.

The 2,500 square metre research and development laboratory will allow brands, universities, and institutes to conduct research, develop new products, pilot new manufacturing, and facilitate clinical trials. Vitex has shown that innovative manufacturers maintaining the highest quality standards can achieve enormous success in national and international markets.
