With a postgraduate degree in organic chemistry back in 1986, Mr. Surya Prakash Rao Nalla, began his career as a production chemist at Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, where he worked for a decade and then worked as a production manager for Aurobindo Pharma for three years, installing numerous next-generation chemicals. In the early 2000s, he, with a partner began Metrochem API and after some time, they launched Synergene Active Ingredients in 2006 with a CAPEX of 1.5 crores and their first manufacturing facility being in Hyderabad.
In 2018, they acquired Jaahnavee Life Sciences in addition to their existing production facilities. To top it all off, they have now established their fourth unit in the same pharmaceutical cluster and all the facilities are compliant with international standards; WHO-GMP Certification for Unit I, II and III, USFDA accreditation for Unit II (Visakhapatnam), and Accreditation of Foreign Drug Manufacturer by PMDA for Unit II (Visakhapatnam). The primary motivation of the organization has always been towards the development of new generation molecules and to disseminate our APIs globally. They currently export 55 percent of their APIs to various nations and regions, with a large number of molecules and therapeutic categories and envision to export at least 70 percent of their manufactured products worldwide, going forward. They, as an organization have always kept up with the latest technology breakthroughs to drive the necessary industry innovation. Furthermore, this is supported by their technically adept team of seasoned doctorates, who have aided in the company’s growth. They have chosen expert doctorates who are experienced in working with various chemicals and technology and have incorporated analytical techniques like LCMS and GCMS. This allows them to look at novel molecules from a different angle to build best-in-class products for its particular audience.
Mr. Surya Prakash has always believed in walking along with employees to maintain a positive relationship and always made sure that not only is the work done efficiently, but that he goes above and beyond to take care of the employees in terms of amenities. He constantly attempts to promote an open culture in which top management goals are well understood by all employees, regardless of departments and spends most of his time in the manufacturing plant rather than just sitting in the cabin.

Mr. Surya Prakash believes that Hard work is required for every success. So, staying up to date on shifting market conditions and reacting appropriately is essential. He says, “As technologies advance, so do techniques for running a firm, regardless of industry vertical. As a result, incorporating novel technologies and efficient techniques, as well as constructing a semi-automated / automated manufacturing facility, should be the next move forward”.
