Founded in 1986 by Mr P V Ramaprasad Reddy, Mr K Nityananda Reddy and a small group of highly committed professionals, Aurobindo Pharma today features among the top 10 companies in India in terms of consolidated revenues. Corporate social responsibility is at the heart of Aurobindo Pharma. Education, health and sanitation and environmental sustainability are few of the major areas that the company supports.
