Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Expands Manufacturing Capabilities to Meet Growing Demand

New Powder Lines and Tablet Presses Enhance Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals' Capacity

The company has added two new powder lines and four Stokes 328 tablet presses to meet the increasing demand for its products, including Precision Protein® and private label offerings.

New Powder Lines for Increased Production

In response to growing demand, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has introduced two additional powder lines. These lines will enhance the company’s ability to produce more of its popular Precision Protein® and support growth in its private label sector. This expansion follows earlier enhancements to the company’s tablet production capabilities.

Enhanced Tablet Production with New Presses

Earlier this year, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals added four new Stokes 328 tablet presses. These presses are strategically allocated to bolster the company’s production capabilities:

SLIMAGLUTIDE® and Cyclosome® Products: Two of the new presses are dedicated to producing large tablets for Hi-Tech’s Cyclosome® Technology and the revolutionary weight management product, SLIMAGLUTIDE®.

Ameripharm OTC Products: The other two presses will be used for the Ameripharm brand of over-the-counter (OTC) products, including a high-quality generic version of Mucinex tablets.
The new presses will support the production of guaifenesin 1200-mg and dextromethorphan HBr 60-mg extended-release tablets, designed to control coughs and break up mucus, making coughs more productive. These products will be sold under both retailers’ private labels and the Ameripharm line of OTC products.

Growing OTC Market and Consumer Demand

The over-the-counter cold and flu market is substantial, with total revenue for cough and cold remedies exceeding $12 billion annually. According to Statista, this market could grow by 7% each year. The Consumer Healthcare Protection Association notes that upper respiratory treatments are the largest OTC drug category.

Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals’ CEO, Jared Wheat, emphasized the company’s commitment to leveraging its capabilities to provide consumers with state-of-the-art products at greater savings. “Hi-Tech continues to expand its nutritional and OTC store brand products. Our supply chain management and manufacturing speed are unrivaled, making us a major producer for many top sports nutrition brands,” said Wheat.
