About Us

LOMUS - a word unknown to many of us is the name of the Rishi who was expert on many therapy during the Duapar age of Rama Regime.

LOMUS WHO standard ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified private Limited company was established in 1986 as a small scale pharmaceutical manufacturing unit and developed rapidly during nineties. With the active co-operations of the concerns outside and dedicated team work efforts inside the company, rapid growth of LOMUS place the company on the top position in the national market since 2002.

In viewing that the total share of national company in the domestic market is still below 30 percent and we are totally dependant for most of the emergency medicines to Indian manufacturers, there is a sobering realization that some pharmaceutical entrepreneurs have to take the challenge to provide that categories of pharmaceutical finish formulations and LOMUS took the initiative in this direction by constructing a new WHO GMP complying manufacturing premises at Gothatar VDC of Kathmandu district having the following salient features:

• 

Extra ordinary premises that can cope 10% of the national requirement with today's minimum operating capacity,

• 

Segretated HORMONE manufacturing unit with separate AHU and primary packaging,

• 

Nepal 's first unit with separate PENICILLIN manufacturing building that comply the WHO Class A GMP requirement,

Recent years have witnessed a burgeoning concern with pharmaceutical ethics, both on the part of lay public and of government. New technological developments pose complex ethical questions hereto fore unknown to pharmacy practitioners, industrial entrepreneurs and governmental agencies.

One critical factor in the growth of contemporary pharmaceutical consumerism is the change in the nature of illness that has occurred in the twenty first century. Then is a decline in the prevalence of infectious diseases and marked increase in the chronic conditions like diabetes, CVS diseases, arthritis and kidney disease among the well beings of urban areas and still terrible prevalence of infectious diseases among the poor villagers. LOMUS consciously addressed both these situations by lunching safe and affordable antimicrobials as well as latest molecules for diabetes and CVS diseases. Low volumes injectable that are coming with priority to cope the necessity of emergency medicines.

Commercially less viable Eye/Ear drops and other necessary less moving formulations are manufactured to serve the public health of the nation.

We have emerged as one of the leading pharmaceutical company in Nepal with a share of rapidly growing national market. It enjoys an inevitable reputation amongst the medical fraternity for its high standard of ethics and quality. Although hundred percent success is hardly achievable we are creating learning for the best to provide the zero defect brands in the market.

LOMUS is the first national company to operate the separate penicillin building to comply the Class-A GMP requirements of World Health Organization. We have installed the segregated Hormones production facility with separate AHU and primary packing with dedicated blister packing machine.
