Pharma Access: Turnkey Pharmaceutical Solutions

CIO Vendor An existing pharmaceutical company based in Iraq wanted to revamp the facility with more stringent guidelines as per cGMP. The challenge was pertaining to change the Heat, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) design in a way that the running facility is not affected for most of the time. Searching for a customized one-stop-shop solution provider in the pharmaceutical engineering sector led them to Pharma Access.

Keeping in mind the guidelines and understanding the cost implementation of the client, Pharma Access reviewed the detail drawing of the existing facility and redesigned the areas that required revamping as per the cGMP. And after the designs were ready, they were tested for feasibility at site and after multiple iterations they designed a stage where final modifications in the designs were agreed to the best of client’s satisfaction. The design was extended to areas which were not cGMP complaint to make them compliant. Since then, Pharma Access has come a long way to provide engineered solutions for businesses around the world andis passionate about executing pharmaceutical engineering turnkey projects that increases the efficiency of its client’s business, complying with all the international standards

The Background

Shams Ahmad Parvaz and Nilofer Ahmad, the founders of Pharma Access have been in the pharmaceuticals sector for more than 23 + years.In 2001, they decided to start a Pharmaceutical Engineering Consultancy company that provides customized solutions to all the pharmaceutical industry needs across the globe. At that point of time most pharmaceutical companies were finding it difficult to consult different vendors for various materials that matched their standards and there was a huge gap between the two. Hence identifying the void and simplifying the process, Pharma Access came into being.
