The Executive Director of Sopharma Ognian Donev received the prestigious Business Partner 2012 award yesterday in Belgrade.
The award has been given since 2008 by representatives of the academic community in Serbia. Its Chairman is Prof. Ilija Cosic, Dean of Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad.
Companies were nominated in 3 categories – regional business partner, business partner of Serbia and media partner. Competitors in the first category were leading companies from 12 countries. The Committee graded one company only from each one of 7 countries, and Sopharma was among them.
The award was deserved because in September last year the Company opened a second manufacturing plant for medicines near Belgrade, explained the organizers. The investment amounts to 8 million Euro and opened 110 new jobs. Eight million packages of tablets, capsules and powders are manufactured at the Plant annually. And, the Serbia's Deputy Prime Minister Bozidar Djelic cut the opening ribbon. Source: 24 Chasa
