The 10-year agreement has been signed with Wockhardt, an Indian pharmaceutical and biotech company employing 7,500 people and sales last year of around US$670m (Euro 425m).

It initially covers the following products: Atopiclair non steroidal cream for atopic dermatitis; Aloclair presentations for the treatment of mouth ulcers; Papulex presentations for the treatment of acne; and Decapinol product range for the treatment and prevention of gingivitis and plaque.

Under the agreement Sinclair will provide finished product to Wockhardt but will switch to local manufacture as soon as possible, which will enhance the margins for Sinclair.
