A few words from the Chairman

Capt. (Retd.) Abdus Sabur Khan


Late Abdul Khaleque Khan, my father, was the man behind Opsonin Pharma Ltd. A man capable of imaginative, critical thinking and vision, had in his mind, from his very student life, to establish a pharmaceutical industry for providing quality medicine at an affordable price, primarily to the trimming millions of his beloved motherland.

His dream was further augmented when he met Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray, the founder of the Bengal Chemical and Pharmaceutical Works, Calcutta and the pioneer of the chemical Industry in undivided Bengal. A benevolent person with a simple lifestyle, my father had an enterprising spirit and was an exceptional student of Islamia College, Calcutta. His dream ultimately came true on the 3rd of March, 1956 when he started his long-cherished organization 'Opsonin Chemical Industries Ltd.' in a very humble way. I joined my father's organization in 1976, turned it into a Private Limited Company and became the Managing Director while my father remained as the Founder Chairman.

From 1976 to 1986, I along with my two capable younger brothers, with good leadership qualities and organizational skills, and many other devoted colleagues assisted my father in expanding our horizon. After achieving a certain stage of success, I handed over the executive authority of our company to my distinguished younger brothers, Mr. Abdur Rouf Khan as the Managing Director, and Mr. Abdur Rakib Khan as the Executive Director in 1986.

Opsonin Chemical Industries Ltd. was later renamed as 'Opsonin Pharma Ltd.' in 2005. I know, our road to success has not ended yet. Nevertheless, Opsonin Pharma Ltd. is proud to have a group of devoted personnel who manifests unparalleled talent, achievement and promises, regarding both professional and personal qualities, which are reflected in the expansion of our business to many other countries of the world besides our own. I am confident that by the grace of Allah (the Almighty), we shall continue to progress in every way and perform competitively among other top ranking pharmaceutical companies of the world.
