About Auden Mckenzie Group
The Auden Mckenzie Group was founded by Amit Patel at the age of 24 after identifying various gaps in the UK market for the supply in specialised injectable products. In 2001, with a starting capital of £150,000, the company was launched with a small pharmaceutical manufacturing unit employing 3 people and marketing only one injectable product. Today the group consists of three companies, employing over 85 people through which the Pharmaceutical Division holds over 100 Product Licences in the UK, 20 Licenses in European countries and has recently been granted its first authorisation in the United States. Auden Mckenzie products are marketed in over 30 countries internationally and are present in all hospitals, pharmacies and wholesalers in the UK.
About Sahara Force India Formula One Team
Sahara Force India Formula One Team was founded in 2008 when Dr Vijay Mallya, Chairman of India’s iconic UB Group, launched the first-ever Indian Formula One team. The cars incorporate the colours of the Indian flag and the team is a sporting representation of the emerging generation of young, aspirational Indians and the growing strength of India as a nation. In 2011 a historic partnership was agreed as Sahara India Pariwar became co-owners of the Silverstone-based team. With the support of Sahara, the team is now driven by two of India’s greatest industrialists who both recognise the value of using sport as a marketing platform to build some of India’s biggest brands.
