late Professor Senaka Bibile and Dr S A Wickramasinghe made a strong case for the establishment of an essential drug manufacturing entity owned and managed by the government of Sri Lanka. As a result in 1987 State Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing Corporation (SPMC) was established with  grant aid from Japanese Government through JICA and plant upgraded in 2018 again with support of JiCA.

SPMC products manufactured  in fully equipped computer-controlled manufacturing facilities profoundly designed in compliance to WHO current Good Manufacturing Practices(cGMP) with a thorough supervision of quality, our pharmaceuticals are in par with the international standards ensuring the highest product quality.

Scientifically and technologically sound trained team working on a continuously developing platform in a research culture with excellent Japanese technology we make only the highest quality pharmaceuticals to distribute through our marketing pipe lines.

Ultimately fulfilling the dream of late Professor Senaka Bibile SPMC manufactures highest quality pharmaceuticals at affordable prices to the nation.
