Message from Management

  • ADCAN Pharma was founded in 2013 as a result of the significant growth in the Gulf Cooperation Council’s pharmaceutical market and the visionary leadership of our management. The UAE and Abu Dhabi’s Pharma-friendly policies provided us with all the support we needed to achieve this milestone. My personal ADCAN Pharma journey has been long and rewarding. It has spanned from conception to reality, and has been an endeavor that I cherish as we begin our life as one of the leading pharmaceutical manufacturing companies in the UAE and the Middle East. With more than forty years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, I can say that ADCAN is the achievement I am most proud of.

    At ADCAN Pharma, we are committed first and foremost to quality and customer service in all aspects of our operations. We strive to strengthen the trust and safety of the patients, by creating products that match the highest Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards using state of the art equipment at our Quality by Design (QbD) facility.

    With the continued support of the Ministry of Health (UAE), we aim to provide high class medicines that help to continually improve the lives of our customers across the GCC and the wider world. We greatly appreciate your trust in ADCAN Pharma.
