CEO, Bio­gene In­dia

When de­ter­mined and as­sid­u­ous en­trepreneurs en­deavor rigidly from the scratch, mea­ger in­vest­ments mul­ti­ply in no time. This is best ex­em­pli­fied by the en­er­getic and mag­netic Mr. San­jay Makhija, the steerer of the Rs. 8 crore Bio­gene In­dia that he founded in 1995 with an in­vest­ment of Rs. 2 lakh. The ISO 9001: 2008 cer­ti­fied com­pany is a dis­trib­u­tor of life science re­search, pharma, and R&D prod­ucts of lead­ing com­pa­nies of the world. “We are ranked amongst the best in our in­dus­try seg­ment for qual­ity and ex­cel­lence. We have over 30 plus sub-dis­trib­u­tors across the coun­try and have been wit­ness­ing an an­nual growth rate of 15%,” says the charis­matic Mr. San­jay Makhija, CEO; he is backed by sev­eral years of tech-rich ex­pe­ri­ence in the life sci­ences, pharma R&D seg­ment.

Prod­uct Port­fo­lio

• Life Science re­search prod­ucts

• Pharma R&D prod­ucts. “We im­port our prod­ucts from Amer­ica, South Korea, China, Canada, Ukraine and Ja­pan,” says Mr. Makhija, who strongly be­lieves in ethics. Mr. Makhija has been at­tend­ing meet­ing and con­fer­ences con­ducted by ma­jor com­pa­nies in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions like USA, China, Vi­enna, Sin­ga­pore, Malaysia, South Korea and Greece. Bio­gene In­dia boasts of a rich client port­fo­lio. Few of the clients in­clude AIIMS, NCBS, IISC, DU, JNU, Glen­mark, Ad­venus, DIACHI, NII, ICGEB, etc. and the list goes on. “We have re­tained 90% of our clients,” says Mr. Makhija. The group has been con­ferred with nu­mer­ous honors and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions over the past years; worth men­tion­ing is BD Bio Science Dis­trib­u­tors award. The dy­namic Mr. Makhija was as­so­ci­ated with nu­mer­ous big names of the in­dus­try like Glaxo Pharma, Amer­sham (Blue Star for 10 years), and prior to start­ing Bio­gene In­dia. He was hon­ored for best sales dur­ing his stint with Blue Star Ltd. (Amer­sham Inc.). Mr. Makhija, who be­lieves in team­work, owes the suc­cess of his group to the ef­forts of his team. He leaves a mes­sage for the read­ers – “I be­lieve in 3P’s. Peo­ple are the most im­por­tant then Prod­ucts and then Profits fol­low later.”
