The genesis of Caplin Point took place in the year 1990 as a Private Limited company mainly to manufacture a wide range of Ointments, Creams and other External applications in addition to the regular segments of pharmaceutical formulations.


In 1994, Caplin Point was converted into a Public Limited company and the public issue was successfully oversubscribed by 117 times which is a record in the Pharmaceutical industry in India. The entire proceeds of the public issue were deployed in the manufacturing facility and then translated into a state of the art factory at Pondicherry spanning 51,000 sq. ft.

We are also one of the early entrants in India in the area of Biotechnology. Caplin Point has already started constructing its latest and largest project, a facility that would be in compliance with US FDA, UK MHRA, and other regulatory bodies for multiple dosage forms such as liquid injectables, ophthalmic drugs and lyophilized bio-tech products.

Caplin Point is focusing on expanding into South America, increase its presence in brand marketing in West Africa and also exploring the possibility of starting up operations in CIS and Eastern European markets.


Caplin Point aims to create new niches in our existing markets to ensure the current foothold remains strong and innovative. We envisage implementing our unique business model across the globe to ensure access to quality medicines at affordable prices.


Innovate to change the rules of the game and not to compete in the game. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
