“We are happy to welcome the representatives of the European Business Association. For a short period of time, Farmak has transformed from a chemical and technological plant into an innovative company – leader of the industry. Thanks to quality and innovations, we have been retaining leadership for over eight years. And we really have something to be proud of. We managed to build European production facilities here, in Ukraine. We are ready to share experience with domestic companies on how to do business in Ukraine according to European standards. Our distinctive feature is that we not only follow the innovations, but localize and adapt them here, in Ukraine, at our own manufacturing sites”, Volodymyr Kostiuk said during the speech.
“Exchange of experience is an important component for business development. Our project, Company Visit, is designed to help our members learn about best business practices, innovative approaches and advanced production and management technologies directly from leading industry representatives. We thank Farmak for its openness and readiness to join the project. The Company is a striking example for others and clearly demonstrates that one should choose a strategy for investing in modernization to be the industry’s market leader. Having visited the Company, we not only heard, but also saw firsthand how much resources the Company spends on innovations and which long-term investment projects enable entering the new markets”, said Mariana Khomitska, Head of the Professional Development Center, European Business Association.

We see that the Company has highly skilled staff. Plus, 45 inspections over three years is a figure that speaks for itself. This means that you have a qualification level that gives us the power to trust you”, shared her impressions Liudmyla Vinnychenko, Authorized Quality Management Director, CAN-PACK.
