Production and Quality Management
Stable supply of high-quality pharmaceutical products
As a pharmaceutical manufacturer specializing in tablets, pills, and liquid dosage form, Kokando is striving to upgrade its production facilities and train the staff engaged in production. We have actively introduced clean, automated technologies to production lines. It enables rigorous quality management through clean, hygienic environment and keeps down the cost through cost-saving measures. In particular, introduction of extensive automation led to substantial increase in production capacity, making steady supply of high-quality pharmaceutical products possible.
We believe the Kokando Quality is only achieved through complete quality management activities involving each individual staff. Any unusual events are immediately resolved through discussion by supervisors of relevant departments. The corrective/preventive measures decided on are then relayed back to the production staff.
Since pharmaceutical products have a direct effect on the human body, strict quality and safety standards are imposed on pharmaceutical manufacturers. Kokando has established a production system that meets the latest GMP standards and undertakes various efforts including validation.
At all stages of production from raw material procurement to release of finished products, we carry out thorough quality control for products consistently high in quality. In particular, Kokando implements rigorous internal standards to control microorganisms. We believe we have been able to earn trust of our customers through this high level of quality control and led to increase in OEM requests.
