This year’s Mourne Truck Run was launched on Sunday 22nd March 2015. Now in its 7th year, the Truck Run has raised over £130,000 for local charities. This year the charities being supported are Southern Area Hospice, which is the main charity, as well as PIPS Newry & Mourne and PSP Association.
Norbrook® Laboratories Ltd was founded by the current Chairman and CEO, Lord Ballyedmond, in the late 1960's, when he pioneered contract manufacturing of pharmaceuticals in the UK. Since then Norbrook has grown to be a worldwide leader in veterinary finished dose form products, medical finished dose form products and bulk pharmaceutical synthesis, making them a leader in the world in the production of pharmaceutical raw materials.
Most recently the company launched Closamectin Pour On, which has revolutionised the treatment of large animals for parasites (for more information about Closamectin visit www.closamectin.com). This is the only product available in Europe for treating parasites including fluke, by pouring it on the back of the animal. Norbrook has a large pipeline of new products which will be coming to the world market from December of this year, which we believe will put Norbrook in the forefront of novel product development in the next decade and beyond.
