EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ   Heritage Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Heritage Pharma Labs had meager beginnings, starting as Emcure Pharmaceuticals USA., Inc. in 2005, with one 15,000-square foot facility and only twelve employees.  But since 2005, Heritage Pharma Labs has achieved significant growth milestones, including:


2008          Adding an additional 19,000 square feet of manufacturing space, growing our headcount to 70 employees, and launching our first commercial product – an ER capsule.


2010          Adding an additional 27,000 square feet of manufacturing space at 16A Elkins Road, East Brunswick, NJ.


2014          Adding 35,000 square feet of warehousing space at 8 Elkins Road, East Brunswick, NJ, growing our headcount to 100 employees, and adopting the Heritage Pharma Labs name.


Today        Adding an additional 38,000 square feet of manufacturing space -- bringing the total area of manufacturing space to 125,000 square feet -- and expecting to increase our total employee headcount in East Brunswick to 225 employees by the beginning of 2019.
