According to the data of trustworthy international and Ukrainian marketing companies (IMS-International Medical Statistics, Business-Credit) the plant occupies the second place as to sales volumes and the first place as to the range of drugs among the domestic pharmaceutical companies.
Borschahivka Chemical-Pharmaceutical Plant was formed in 1947 as a small business which produced besides medicines food and consumer goods.
In 1994 the plant was privatized. Plant property was purchased from the state by the plant employees, their families and retired persons for own profits of the plant and property certificates without attracting outside investment.

Among them are such vital drugs as ALLOHOL, NITROSORBID, CYCLODOL, AMPIOKS, RIFAMPITSIN, ISONIAZID.
