COPENHAGEN, Denmark, May 18 Axellia Pharmaceuticals ApS ("Axellia"), an international pharmaceutical company, announces that it has acquired a majority interest in Phoenix Global Supply Group, Inc. ("Phoenix"), based in White Plains, New York, to supply finished dosage over-the-counter pharmaceutical products in the United States and Canada.
Axellia is a leading provider of several life saving anti-infective drugs, with a growing presence in injectable finished products. Axellia's Chief Executive Officer, Carl-Ake Carlsson, commented, "Our investment in Phoenix is a significant expansion of Axellia's presence in the international pharmaceutical market. An important part of our strategy is to expand our offering to include finished products in targeted dosage forms and geographic markets, while continuing to develop our core API (active pharmaceutical ingredients) business."
