Lincoln Pharmaceuticals, promoted by Mahendra G Patel, Rajnikant G Patel and Hasmukhbhai I Patel, as a partnership firm in Jan 1979 to manufacture pharmaceutical formulations was converted into a public limited company in Jan. '95. All the assets and business of the erstwhile partnership was transferred to the company. The company was carrying on its business by getting its products manufactured on loan licence basis from 1979 to 1982. It then set up its own manufacturing facilities at Naroda, Gujarat for manufacturing tablets, capsules, liquid and powder syrups and, ointments. It is also getting its products manufactured on loan licence basis from other manufacturers to meet the demand of small volume parenterals. The company has set up a modern formulation manufacturing plant at Khatraj (Mehsana district), Gujarat, to manufacture small volume parenterals like dry powder injectables, liquid vial, liquid ampoules and eye drops and expand its production capacities of the existing products. It is also in the process of establishing a fully equipped laboratory to undertake in-house testing of its products for better quality control and R&D. It came out with a public issue in Feb.'96 to part-finance its project. In 2000-01 the company has been granted ISO 9002 certificate and WHO registration.
