JSC Werteks 
JSC Vertex is a pharmaceutical company with production facilities in St. Petersburg. In 2017, the company was nominated for the Russian Government's Quality Award. It was the only pharmaceutical company among the nominees.

Vertex produces generics and innovative original drugs. The company's portfolio comprises more than 200 medicines and cosmetics, 80 of which are recognized as vitally important. All production facilities are built in strict compliance with GxP standards.

The new plant's capacity is over 100 million packs per year. Having achieved these results, the company plans to keep going and expand production, producing even more advanced and needed medicines.

The research and development laboratory is designed to create new medicines and work out the best technologies for their production. In essence, it is a mini-production facility with the ability to carry out the finest analyses.

The equipment installed allows the synthesis of new drugs, preclinical studies and the production of pilot batches. The entire production and research cycle can only be achieved by optimising the technology, so technological solutions play a special role here.

One important component of the laboratory is several production sewerage systems. For each type of chemical, including the most toxic and explosive ones, a specific disposal method has been developed to ensure total safety for people and the environment.

All research is carried out in separate laboratories with sophisticated equipment. Engineering systems in each laboratory are individually designed for specific tasks. For example, in the lab that studies hygroscopic substances, the humidity in the air is reduced to almost 0%.

The entrance to the high-potency labs is organised via a system of airlocks, and the outgoing air is subjected to a multi-stage treatment process. This means that almost all laboratory processes take place in a closed circuit, without even the smallest quantities of substances being released into the room air.

The automated high-rise warehouse is designed to hold all of the company's enormous raw materials and production volumes. Despite its large size, the high-tech computer systems enable any shipment to be quickly assembled and dispatched.
