SKG-Pharma is a licensed GMP manufacturing organisation based in Lagos, Nigeria. We are one of the major players in a diverse and competitive market.
SKG-Pharma Ltd started business in Nigeria in the year 1962, as LePetit Ltd. This company became Welcome Le Petit Ltd and transformed to Welcome Nig Ltd when it became a full subsidiary of Welcome Plc, UK. The company Welcome Nig. Ltd became established as one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in Nigeria with a fully equipped factory that manufactured many of the Welcome brands.
In 1994, the Rumon Organisation UK, bought the majority shareholding of Welcome UK. This gave rise to SKG-Pharma Ltd, which continued to manufacture the Welcome brands in Nigeria under license and represent Welcome UK for the non locally manufactured brands on an agency basis until the year 2000. Following the take over of Welcome by Glaxo, the relationship that SKG-Pharma had with Welcome UK was affected as GlaxoWellcome’s operation in Nigeria naturally took up the former Welcome brands.
SKG-Pharma has continued to operate in the main with own brands (some of which are replacements for the former Welcome brands) and some imported brands.
