Gordon, president and ceo of Banner Pharmacaps, added: ‘We are delighted to be joining forces with Impax, a speciality pharma company whose vision and goals so closely mirror those of Banner. They join our expanding list of partners who look to Banner to provide expertise in the development of gelatin-based drug delivery systems and unique technology platforms.’
