Grifols continues its expansion in Africa. The Spanish pharmaceutical company, which specializes in the production of plasma derivatives, announced Monday, July 19th, that it will build an intravenous solutions production plant in Nigeria for Dozie and Dozie’s Pharma, a supplier of medical devices in the country and the region.
Upon completion of the first phase of the facility in 2024, the plant, which will be located in southeastern Nigeria, will be able to produce up to 5.5 million bags of intravenous solutions per year for use in hospitals and other healthcare institutions in Nigeria and other African countries.
Grifols Engineering, which has extensive worldwide experience in the construction of advanced and specialized production facilities for the healthcare and biotechnology sectors, will design the plant and provide the clean rooms and equipment necessary to carry out the processes. The facilities will have sufficient capacity to double production and meet the expected growth in demand, according to Grifols.

Grifols strengthened its presence in Africa by signing a strategic alliance with the Egyptian government in November 2020
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Dozie and Dozie’s Pharma to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant for intravenous solutions that will improve the delivery of healthcare services in Nigeria and West Africa,” says Daniel Fleta, Grifols’ industrial director.
Grifols strengthened its presence in Africa with the signing, in November 2020, of a strategic alliance with the Egyptian government to develop the local plasma therapy market, which includes the opening of twenty plasma donation centers and the construction of a plasma fractionation plant and a purification, dosing and conditioning plant. Africa will benefit from these infrastructures aimed at strengthening the self-sufficiency of plasma derivatives in the region.
The company has also designed and set up a plasma collection center and modular laboratories in Liberia as part of its efforts to combat Ebola, and is finalizing the construction of an intravenous solutions plant in Morocco, after completing its design and refurbishment.
The pharmaceutical company is also present in other African countries such as Liberia and Egypt
The total economic impact of Grifols in the main countries where it operates is estimated at $8.85 billion (€7.5 billion) and 140,000 jobs generated, including direct, indirect, and induced employment.
Headquartered in Abuja (Nigeria), Dozie and Dozie’s Pharm is a company created in 1990. It was formed with the objective of making research-based specialty drugs available to customers in Nigeria and other parts of Africa. It has focused on importing drugs in various areas such as oncology and immunology, among others. Due to the huge success of this business, the company is moving towards total exclusivity of specialty drugs in almost all hospitals, as well as major private clinics and government institutions and agencies.
