Granules India Limited is an Indian pharmaceutical manufacturing company based in Hyderabad, India. Granules manufacture several off-patent drugs, including Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Metformin and Guaifenesin, on a large scale for customers in the regulated and rest of the world markets. Granules India Limited entered the CRAMS segment, which focuses on contract research and manufacturing. Granules India was formed in 1984 as Triton Laboratories. Triton produced Paracetamol API at its Bonthapally factory on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Triton scientists found a more efficient way to produce the Paracetamol API, which led to lower capital and raw material requirements. In 1987, Triton became the only Indian company aside from Dr Reddy’s Laboratories to export pharmaceutical products to the U.S.Though Triton was growing as an API manufacturer, management decided it could create a value-added version of its product. In order to distinguish itself from competitors, Triton management pioneered the concept of manufacturing and selling in bulk granulated Paracetamol, also known as directly compressible grade material (DC), or "PFI". In 1990, it opened its second manufacturing facility at Jeedimetla to produce multiple APIs.In 1991, management set up a new entity, which was incorporated as Granules India Limited. Soon after Granules applied the PFI concept to other APIs, set up a PFI facility at Jeedimetla and began exporting the material to various markets including the U.S., Germany and Australia.
