In May 2012, Piramal acquired Decision Resources Group (DRG) a US-based company in the healthcare information segment. DRG provides high-quality, web-enabled research, predictive analytics via proprietary databases and consulting services to the global healthcare industry. DRG works in deep partnership with global pharmaceutical companies on a daily basis as evidenced by the fact that 48-of-the-top-50 global pharmaceutical companies are its customers.
In October 2012, Piramal's Pharma Solutions division formed a strategic alliance with Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies (Japan) whereby Piramal partnered with Fujifilm to offer the seamless contract development and manufacture of antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), a growing niche in the development of biopharmaceuticals.
