Aurobindo Pharma, an India-based maker of generic drugs, has purchased 90 acres on Windsor Center Drive in East Windsor where it plans to build a pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution center. The project is to expand Aurobindo’s New Jersey footprint and is complementary to the company’s existing facilities in Dayton.

The property is across from Route 133 near the 43,000-square-foot Patscentre building, now occupied by Novotec, a pharmaceutical R&D company. The new facility is expected to generate at least 300 new jobs.

Aurubindo’s portfolio includes a wide array of products covering many therapeutic areas and disease states for both the retail and institutional markets.

The East Windsor location will be the company’s main distribution center and will provide another site for manufacturing. Aurobindo was founded in 1986 and went public in 1992. It has business operations in more than 125 countries.
