Lupin was founded on the auspicious “Guddi padwa’ Day in 1968 by Dr. Desh Bandhu Gupta - a visionary with a compelling mission to create a better world for people. DBG as he was fondly called, started the company with a dream - a dream to fight life-threatening, infectious diseases with affordable and high-quality drugs of the highest social priority. With his vision, inimitable commitment and passion, Dr. Gupta steered the organization to become one of the fastest-growing Generic pharmaceutical companies around the world.
The name ‘Lupin’ was inspired by the flower Lupin which is known to nourish the soil it grows in.
The Lupin flower is also known to be tolerant of the infertile soils and capable of pioneering change in barren and poor climates. This inspiration is at the core of the company’s ethos as it relentlessly strives to build medical solutions to meet the unmet needs of the society not just for a few but for the many across the globe.
Lupin is recognised as one of the world's largest manufacturers of Tuberculosis drugs. Today, we have significant market share across multiple therapy areas such as Cardiovascular (prils and statins), Diabetology, Asthma, Paediatric, Central Nervous System (CNS), Gastro Intestinal (GI), Anti-Infective (AI) and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). To add to this, we are proud to maintain over the years our global leadership positions in other therapy areas such as Anti-TB and Cephalosporin.
We are inspired by our heritage and cherish the legacy as we move forward towards building our future.
