Setting a path towards market leadership through innovation, pharmaceutical and health products manufacturer Millimed is driving its momentum forward by adopting the latest technologies in medical encapsulation and packaging.
Among the Bangkok-based manufacturer’s cutting-edge products is its premium hard capsules that can contain liquids. Unlike typical soft gelatin capsules, Millimed’s hard capsules cannot be easily penetrated by air, preventing oxidation. This ensures the stability of its food supplements, medicines and cosmeceuticals.
“We are the only company in Thailand with the machine to make this type of capsule,” says Channarong Tachaungkoon, Millimed’s managing director.
“We have also upgraded our facilities with state-of-the-art machinery. Our slogan ‘Good Quality, Good Health’ describes our desire to provide the best quality product and quality of life by infusing a customer-centric approach in our services.”
A recipient of the Prime Minister’s Export Award 2018 for best exporter, Millimed develops its products at its own research and development (R&D) centre and collaborates with the National Research Council of Thailand and the R&D centres of Chulalongkorn University and Thammasat University. With a goal of becoming the No 1 pharmaceutical and health care products company in Thailand by 2025, the company is raising the bar by producing new lines of high-quality generic medicines, food supplements and herbal and traditional medicine.
Millimed is inviting agents and business partners that have the capability to distribute its products and grow with the company by promoting its wide range of home-grown brands. At present, Millimed is marketing and distributing its products for domestic consumption, and is exporting to more than 15 countries either by itself or through local partners. It is also planning to grow its original equipment manufacturing business by attracting potential clients in these markets.
“We are capable of providing competitively priced solutions that are tailor-made for our clients,” says Sarun Wongpattaraworakul, international business manager. “There are many players competing in the same market, but we are confident that our value-added products provide more benefits to potential clients.”
