The U.S. headquarters of Ranbaxy Inc. has moved from College Road East to Independence Way. Ranbaxy earlier this year merged with Sun Pharma in a $4 billion deal. Both companies were India-based manufacturers of generic drugs.

In November the FDA found seven breaches of manufacturing standards at a Sun plant in India that was formerly owned by Ranbaxy.
