It gives me an immense pleasure today to share a snapshot of what I call as “a quick and happening journey”; Just going back in time for about 7 years from now. But before I do that, it is imperative to acknowledge that G.H. Patel College of Engineering and Technology has been a toll gate beyond which an individual comes out to be a polished and mature aspiring candidate ready to face the world and create a niche for himself/herself.
I was more than convinced to be an employee at least once and understand the pleasure and importance of the “employer-employee” relationship. I got placed with one of the big brands as a production officer. But, the original dream of entrepreneurship persisted and my endeavour was strong enough to drive me through the phase of an intense research and arrive at decision to choose the mode of business that I would finally settle for.
The abstract of the hard work was that I decided to trade in the APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) and Drug and Dye intermediates. I founded a trading company in the year 2012 and passionately named it as Farbe Firma (inspired by German words: Farbe = Colour and Firma = company). Having inspired by the first-year performance Farbe Firma saw its first expansion in the year 2013 in the form of a branch office in UAE. The company acquired an area in the G.I.D.C. estate of Ankleshwar that ought to have been used for higher inventory levels of the trading goods. My inner self and its cravings to serve society were equally strong. I therefore decided to restrict myself to the pharmaceuticals. As if this was not enough, I continued for more refinements and decided to take up rarest and more challenging segment of pharmaceutical business i.e. manufacturing of the drug products in the injectable forms.
In the early 2015 Farbe Firma was one of the four companies who were selected in the Vibrant Gujarat scheme to sign a Memorandum of Understanding for investment in Gujarat.
Farbe Firma has already set up a manufacturing unit for injectable drug formulations in then industrial estate of Ankleshwar. This is aimed at being one of the best facilities around, with state of the art equipment and cutting edge technologies embedded. We are committed to subject this manufacturing facility to international regulatory agencies’ inspections to seek business opportunities and expand in the US, Europe, UK, Australia and South America apart from catering the domestic market consistently.
Farbe Firma is also busy to plan expansions through “Long Range Planning”. At this point of time, I seek a lot of blessings from my seniors in the industry, friends and family members.
