on October 15, 2012

On October 12, JSC Olainfarm celebrated 40 years since first batch of furaginum was synthesized, which marked the beginning of company’s operations.  During the celebrations Chairman of the Boards Mr. Valerijs Maligins not only had reviewed the major achievements, but also came up with forecasts regarding the expected development during the next decade; the company plans to invest about 35 million lats and maintain the growth of about 10-15% per annum, which, if more favourable scenario develops, could be even as high as 20-30%.

„Olainfarm” faces its 40th anniversary in a very good shape – we have gained some experience, increased the production output, entered some new markets and have extended out product portfolio.  Basically we are very well prepared for stable growth and further expansion to new markets in coming years.  This gives me a reason to forecast that during the next decade, with the pessimistic scenario our growth will be at the level of 10-15%.  However, Olainfarm has all the necessary resources to maintain its growth level at about 20-25% or even 30% per annum.  Besides, we do not only grow on our own, we grow in cooperation with local and international partners and with the World Health Organisation,” says Valerijs Maligins, Chairman of Olainfarm’s Board.

V. Maligins emphasizes: „The most important factor influencing development of Olainfarm over the last 40 years and expected to influence it further are people: our employees, scientists, partners, patients. I would like to thank them and wish them further growth together with Olainfarm.”
