UK chemistry engineering firm Vapourtec is establishing a burgeoning market for its flow chemistry systems across India with the continued development of a distribution partnership with Mumbai-based Pi-Process Intensification. Pi-Process Intensification have been acting as distributors for Vapourtec’s R-Series systems for the past three years and will now also be distributing their E-Series system. Dr Reddy’s Labs is one of a number of key customers. They recently took delivery of a second R-Series system, this time for their research lab in Hyderabad. The R-Series has a wide range of applications with more than 200 systems installed and already used around the world by many major companies including BP, Pfizer, GSK, Sanofi, Novartis and Johnson & Johnson.
Pi-Process Intensification CEO Vijay Kirpalani commented: “We’re delighted to have linked up with Vapourtec to bring the latest flow chemistry innovations to the Indian sub-continent.
“As the potential and awareness of continuous chemical processing increases, we only foresee further interest in both Vapourtec’s R-Series and E-Series systems and associated products,” added Vijay.
Vapourtec Sales & Application Specialist Andrew Mansfield said: “The development of a market for Vapourtec in India and South Asia suggests there is significant scope for growth in the use of flow chemistry
“Having been closely involved in the formation of a flow chemistry capability in India, it is very encouraging to see significant progress being made,” added Andrew.
