The foundation of Fulton
Fulton was founded in 1985 from the intuition and ambition of Italian entrepreneurs who, with the desire to meet the demands of the Italian and foreign pharmaceutical market, decided to get involved and invest in the company.
Over the course of a few years, the company has grown from a staff of just a few people to a total of over 40 employees, with a percentage of graduates exceeding 40% and an equal ratio of female to male employment.
The first plant was located in Milan and, later, thanks to the constant growth of both the production and the control, quality and storage departments and, in order to constantly improve the quality of work of the employees, the plant was moved to the current location in Arese, in the province of Milan.
The Arese plant
The production workshop, measuring approximately 3000 square metres, is characterised by the technological innovation applied to all its parts and was built in full compliance with the latest regulations, paying particular attention to environmental impact. The site is mainly dedicated to the production of pharmaceutical forms, such as suppositories, ovules, oral and vaginal capsules, tablets, powders for oral extemporaneous and cutaneous preparations.
The plant also manufactures Medical Devices and is also authorised to manufacture suppositories and ova containing corticosteroids and herbal substances.
