The pharma industry now has the whole world’s attention, and it is likely to remain so in the post covid era. As a

Stature Life Sciences has elbowed out to be one of the fastest-growing pharmaceutical companies all over India. Our sheer focus revolves around products that boost the immune system of patients and a few products on pain management. Currently, we have a significant amount of focus on developing drugs that boost immunity; our vitamin-rich products like Becozac stand as strong testament to our commitment.

Share with us a successful case study of one of your latest drugs.
Sure. If you consider diabetic patients and their lifestyles, the amount of vitamins they need to maintain is a little difficult. We had researched the market and came up with one of our brands – Reznew and kept adding many under its name. We have Reznew+ tablets and Reznew+ injections for immediate control of vitamin levels of diabetic patients. This is an additional supplement, but will help the patient have better compatibility. We have Reznew D and recently have also introduced L-Cartinine with methylcobalamin under the brand name of Reznew LC.
Where is the company headed in the years to come? What is Stature’s future roadmap?
We are looking forward to expanding our business into multiple states. We are also planning to improvise our product offerings and increase the customer base to over 10,000 customers by next year. Currently, we are an Rs.4 crore company. Our goal is to become an Rs.10 crore company by 2021 and an Rs.100 crore company by 2026.
