Our Journey

What started as a company facilitating entry of foreign pharma enterprises in India almost five decades ago, redefined its existence as a manufacturing entity in pharmaceuticals in 1980 and today stands as one of the largest and leading pharmaceutical manufacturing companies. Anantco was the first to initiate manufacturing of Steroids and Hormones and production of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients at its manufacturing unit in Gujarat.

The decade of the 1990s saw the emergence of Anantco as a platform in the pharmaceutical space serving Indian pharma companies with an expanded portfolio including manufacturing, imports, exports, audits, licensing, product registrations, and legal procedures. We help companies identify the right suppliers from the large pool of producers and support them in manufacturing, trading, shipping, quality compliances, and regulatory procedures. We have trained teams for R & D, analysis, documentation and production. This gives us the edge over a standalone consulting or trading firm.

Anantco laid its first brick under the visionary leadership of Mr. Anant Thakore who began his career in the Logistics industry after graduating as an advocate.

His farsightedness made him see the challenges faced by businessmen in the import-export sector due to the presence of Licence Raj. This is when the idea of starting a company to help pharmaceutical exporters stirred in his mind and thus began the highly eventful journey of Anantco.

Today Mr. Anant Thakore’s wisdom illuminates and mentors the new generation into the business. He is vigorously active in the management functioning and company’s decision making.

Anil Thakore

Mr. Anil Thakore realized his passion and inclination towards business at a very early age and took it up immediately after completing his academics.

His everlasting seeking spirit, compelled him to learn the ropes of the trade with every passing moment. Today, with fifty years of golden experience and an absolute futuristic approach, he heads the entire administration and financial planning of the company.

Darshan Thakore

The second generation entrepreneur, Mr. Darshan Thakore has led the company reach new heights through his incredible forthright approach in heading the Pharmaceutical Indenting Division and Chemical trade.
