Open to Innovative Products and Partnerships

Here at Upsher-Smith Laboratories, LLC, partnerships are crucial to our success. We can’t do it alone, which is why we choose to partner with those with similar goals in mind. Our new parent company, Sawai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., shares this same approach, as well as a similar “patients first” philosophy.

Though we are open to a variety of opportunities, we currently have a particular interest in:
– Multisource products with barriers or challenges to competitive entry
– U.S. distribution agreements with international generic companies

Working with both domestic and international companies allows us to bring a wider range of products to market and serve a larger base of U.S. customers. As a prospective business partner, we’re uniquely positioned to deliver value for the following reasons:

We’re flexible. We’re open to creative and unique approaches to partnering. While Upsher-Smith is focused on commercializing products in the U.S., Sawai provides more of a global scale. Our combined capabilities now provide greater versatility and access to resources.

We have range. Both Upsher-Smith and Sawai have been in business for approximately 100 years—long lifespans with broad and deep track records. Upsher-Smith, in particular, has partnered with a variety of U.S. and international partners during that time, from multi-billion dollar corporations to small private firms.

We provide a high level of support. Upsher-Smith is known throughout the U.S. pharmaceutical industry for our commitment to quality, affordable products—which we strive to deliver in a consistent supply—and for being true to our word. We are also renowned for cultivating strong relationships with our business partners throughout the supply chain all the way to the patients, our most important customers.
