The company now is an independent entity and has two Units one located at Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar ( Maharashtra, India) and the second one at Newasa (Maharashtra ,India) .

The visionary Mr. Shrikant Deshmukh who is the pioneer of this company strongly believed in the potential of the intermediates which were then imported in India in tonnage quantities. On the basis of import Substitution and export promotion ,the company started with two main molecules Furfurylamine and 2, 4-Dichloroacetophenone.

The focus being on high purity, optimum yield, process and infrastructure safety and sustainability along with cost effectiveness, Galaxy has established goodwill in the pharmaceutical sector and is now an approved vendor to major pharmaceutical MNC’S and companies.

With its unique style of achieving excellence through innovation especially in machinery and process it was able to also deliver high value intermediates in joint ventures and now has a niche product mix of its own.

Understanding the need of the time and the importance of Regulatory guidelines Galaxy has a well-established Quality Assurance and Environment, Health and Safety infrastructure set up and has ISO and c GMP certifications. This gives the company a sustainable fringe to overcome any kind of contingencies. Galaxy acquired its second unit at Newasa in the year 2015 owing to further expansion and is now aiming at bringing new products in the market. Hydrogenation being the company’s expertise ,Phase I of Unit II started with building a 250 nm3/hr ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ Hydrogen Generation Plant with Methanol cracking and Phase II commenced after getting the necessary environment and PESO clearances . The company since then has diversified by including the cosmetic & perfumery sector products along with the pharmaceutical sector. Intermediate which aid in supporting crop science and agricultural biodiversity is also now being included in the product mix . The R&D department of the company is researching on more products which will be import substitutes aiming at making the Indian Pharmaceutical sector self-sustaining.
