Themis Story


The Themis Story

The journey began way back in 1952....

November 28, 1952
Three young pharmacy graduates envisioned a future in the Indian pharmaceutical industry. Together, they co-founded a company and a vision – Therapeutic Pharmaceuticals. Shantibhai, Kantibhai and K. P. Menon contract manufactured their first preparation - ISOPASCAL-CD in tablet form for use in treatment of Tuberculosis.

Overtime, they setup their own manufacturing facility in Andheri, Mumbai (India), adding several new products to their basket. One of their first well established and popular brands was Metacin (Paracetamol).

The company has evolved by name and owners over the years from Therapeutic Pharmaceuticals, Laboratories Orgasyn, Chemosyn Laboratories to Themis Chemicals, a joint venture with the Hungarian pharmaceutical company Gedeon Richter.

Today, Themis Medicare Limited, owned and run by Shanti Bhai’s kin re-established the 50 year old partnership with Gedeon Richter with a new joint manufacturing facility based in Vapi, Gujarat (India) called Richter Themis. 50 years of joint venture between Themis and Gedeon Richter is a testament of a long-strong bonding and relationship between two companies and countries.

Since 1969, with every remarkable innovation, we have pursued possibilities.

With strong research focus on injectables and drug-delivery systems, we have made wellbeing possible. Some of the well acclaimed research based products include:
