In a press release here, the Arch Pharmalabs Director, Mr V. Balaji, termed it as a new business model that the company is continuing to nurture. The company has been looking at such opportunities to help it expand its product and capabilities through partners thus exploring and banking on respective strengths in the manufacturing and marketing and offer the customers a single source for various products in various therapeutic segments, he said.
