Today we have 34 molecules, PIC/s Approvals, EU Approval, Jordanian FDA approval. MKPPL which had already mastered the Macro, Micro & MUPS arenas is now quickly taking its steps towards Nano technology which would be a major breakthrough in NDDS.

The trek to reach this foothill was not easy. So, what was it that kept me going through these terribly tough times?

There is a point of no return in any business. When it came, I did not turn back. Because once you start something you cannot accept failure. And that’s probably what kept me going.

Today Mrs Satya is a successful Entrepreneur of a 7-million-dollar Manufacturing Company. To the world, she appears as a confident, happy human being who is enjoying all the success that the world has to give. Cars, Houses and apparent wealth.

But is that who she is? “I am a woman first and then an independent woman. Success never comes easy. It requires a lot of risk taking and a very strong mental balance and a never say die attitude. This is all what made me a dynamic leader within the industry” she said.

Today the plant has 140 fulltime employees and another 60 who work on contract basis. “

I am a woman first and then an independent woman.
