Julphar Gulf Pharmaceutical Industries, the largest generic pharmaceutical manufacturer in Middle East and North Africa (MENA), announced it has closed the year 2016 with sales of AED 1.45 billion.

As one of the UAE’s most ambitious company, Julphar is now expanding to maximize presence in the region and strives to make an impact in the global stage, with the finalization of our world-class manufacturing facility in Saudi Arabia later this month.”
“This expansion has been possible thanks to the dedication and remarkable effort of our network of 3,000 employees, and i would like to express my gratitude to them for their hard work,” added Jerome Carle.
