ACG recently announced the inclusion of its capsule manufacturing facility in Pithampur, India, into the Global Lighthouse Network (GLN) by the World Economic Forum (WEF). WEF’s Global Lighthouse Network is a community of manufacturers which shows leadership in using Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to transform factories, value chains and business models, for compelling financial and operational returns. The GLN has experienced exponential growth since its inception, expanding from 16 to 153 lighthouses. This initiative is a collaboration between WEF and Mckinsey & Company with independent panel of experts designating factories and value chains that join the GLN.
The certification comes after audits of 25-plus use cases for the facility that have not only led to manufacturing of superior quality products but also, transformed operations creating new benchmarks for timely production, according to the company. ACG added that the company’s Pithampur factory exemplifies accelerated deployment of GenAI, addressing the evolving skill sets of employees in manufacturing through a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and policy interfacing with GenAI.
“When ACG embarked on its journey to digital transformation, I recall how Industry 4.0, AI and ML were emerging concepts,” said Karan Singh, managing director of ACG Group. “The focus was directed toward deploying these technologies to enhance productivity and transform the way we operate; aiming to ultimately enhance accessibility to affordable medicines. With an ambitious and dedicated team, we forged a collective commitment to raise the bar of excellence in delivering high-quality capsules worldwide.”
