A current employee from the factory said, “We will be reborn as a world top drug manufacturing factory beyond our current level with a more rigid quality control system and employees’ cheerful operation of the factory.”

As result its single factory is securing manufacturing competitiveness equivalent to that of many world-leading pharmaceutical companies.
