The company is taking up 100,000 sq ft of space to build a comprehensive discovery services centre 

TCG Lifesciences (TCGLS) is a global CRO and CDMO company with operations in Kolkata, Hyderabad, Richmond, VA, and Princeton, NJ, has opened a new R&D facility in Pune, as part of a major expansion.


Pune with its proximity to Mumbai and Gujarat offers a great ecosystem of talents, scientific institutions, and relevant industry players which TCGLS plans to leverage to build a major presence there. It is taking up approximately 100,000 sq ft of space to build a comprehensive discovery services centre. 

Starting with an efficient team of chemists and support personnel in July 2022, TCGLS foresees the ability to accommodate a sizeable batch of chemists, biologists, and formulation scientists in the coming years. It is also looking at opportunities in speciality chemicals and polymer sciences activities in line with its parent company, The Chatterjee Group’s investments in those domains.

“Pune, being an education hub of the country, produces a large number of postgraduates. We want to induct and nurture these young talents coming from the reputed academic institutes and research laboratories and provide them with an excellent foundation for their career growth,” commented Anirban Mitra, Head of Human Resource Development at TCGLS.

The current team is headed by existing and highly experienced TCGLS leadership team members. The centre is equipped with high-end scientific infrastructure, equipment, and analytical instruments to address the diverse and complex requirements of its clients and partners. The labs are equipped with automation devices, safety instrumentation, and regular and walk-in fume hoods. It is supported by general access to scientific journals/databases, IT systems with secured networks, human resource officers, and best practices in safety and supply chain.

“Setting up this new facility in Pune further demonstrates our commitment towards building a world-class provider of CRO and CDMO services. In particular, we will strive to provide our customers and partners with cutting-edge science, best-in-class practices and on-time deliveries,” says Dr Goutam Saha, Vice President and site head of the Pune operations.
