In 2010 a successful spin-off of BIOFAC Esbjerg factory took place. In BIOFAC Esbjerg we developed a unique and successful technological process for Chondroitin Sulfate without usage of organic solvents.
Since then all BIOFAC factories have been certified with GMP. BIOFAC achieved a turnover growth of about 25 % during 2010-2013. We expanded our staff by more than 10% during the same period, where especially the R&D department, the QC department, and our analytical laboratories increased in a number of employees.
Today our production takes place in five modern factories; all our factories are located in Denmark.
In 2005, Biofac decided to move the existing production facilities for Thrombin to a newly completely modernized building in Kastrup. Here Biofac, Kastrup was established producing the pharmaceutical enzymes Thrombin and Fibrinolysin. Both these completely new production lines are now GMP approved by the Danish FDA (“Lægemiddelstyrelsen”) according to Q7A.
In 1984 Biofac, Ejby was established in the modern dairy plant of Ejby Mejeri. In this plant Biofac produces a variety of products based on animal glands. The plant is extremely flexible, which enables us to adjust the quality of many of these products to suit the exact needs of our numerous individual clients.
In 1988 the BIOFAC group of companies acquired a chemical factory in Northern Jutland. A lot of new equipment and machinery was installed and in August 1989 Danipharm A/S started the production of Lactulose Concentrate. Since then the factory has been modernized, enlarged, and automated and the capacity of production has been increased considerably.
In 1987 Biofac took over Orthana Kemisk Fabrik A/S, which was founded in 1934 by the Mørch family. Originally Orthana produced a wide range of animal extracts, but through the 50’s and 60’s the focus turned more and more towards specialising the production, concentrating on 3 major areas, Pepsin, Peptones and Mucins.
PharmaDan A/S was founded as a subsidiary of Danipharm A/S to manufacture finished, liquid pharmaceutical products – first and foremost based on Danipharm’s Lactulose products.
The production facilities of PharmaDan A/S are situated in Østerbølle, Jutland, and the superior modern production lines are designated for filling and packing primarily of Lactulose and thus meeting the quality demands of international pharmaceutical companies. PharmaDan A/S has been approved by the Danish Health Authorities.
