About Terumo Penpol


Terumo Penpol personifies the story of a home grown R&D initiative commercialized successfully. Practicing the concept of “ Quality First ” approach in manufacturing, Terumo Penpol has been serving Blood Centers across the globe for more than 25 years. Partnering with Terumo Corporation, Japan, a global leader in healthcare products, has enabled Terumo Penpol to harness the combined strengths in Technology and Manufacturing to continue redefining standards in Blood Transfusion.

The Birth

Peninsula Polymers (Penpol) Pvt Ltd., incorporated in 1983, was the brainchild of former IAS officer, C. Balagopal. Captivated by a newspaper article on blood bag technology, the young bureaucrat embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that led to pioneering steps in biomedical device manufacture. Partnering with Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (known then as the Chitra Medical Centre), Penpol started production in its factory in Trivandrum, Kerala, on 26th March 1987, with TTK Pharma as its sole sales agent. In 1989, the company achieved some significant  milestones like sending out its first export shipment, and setting up its R&D division.

New Horizons

In the mid-1990s, although the Indian economy had opened up, imported medical equipment was still expensive. More importantly, such equipment could not be serviced or repaired easily. Letting the winds of customer demand fill its sails, Penpol started manufacturing blood transfusion and allied equipment in 1996, and, in 2001, the company began its export.

A Partnership Across Boundaries

In 1999, Penpol entered into a joint venture with the multi billion dollar Terumo Corporation of Japan, and changed its name to Terumo Penpol. By teaming up with an international company that had a reputation for unimpeachably superior technology and global marketing capability, Terumo Penpol took yet another step towards becoming a world leader in developing and manufacturing innovative devices, equipment and accessories for blood transfusion.

Terumo Penpol is part of Terumo Corporation, a Japanese company with JPY 489.5 billion in revenue and presence in over 150 countries. Terumo has distinguished itself as a high quality manufacturer of medical products, with 22 factories around the world and employs 19,934 people worldwide. Terumo is pioneering products of future like implantable left-ventricular assist systems, artificial vessels, minimally invasive surgery devices, nano-capsules and more.

The Way Ahead

Terumo Penpol with an annual production of 30 million units, has become the  leading  manufacturer of blood bags which are used in 80 countries.  Its equipment installations have today crossed 10,000 numbers. Enjoying  the loyalty of around 1500-strong workforce, this 28-year-old company has set its focus  to be the market leader in Blood Transfusion industry.

At Terumo Penpol, Quality is a way of  life, starting with material procurement from world class sources,  production adhering to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), testing as per quality and safety standards, and installation followed by unique, TPL customer care services.  The quality management system of Terumo Penpol is certified according to ISO 9001, 1SO 13485, European Standards EN 46001 and European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.

Twenty-eight years ago, Penpol came into being to fulfill its dream of uniting science and a spirit of enterprise, to give millions of ailing people a new lease of life. Today, that vision remains the pivotal point, as Terumo Penpol moves forward into the future as an  innovative enterprise operating  in Blood Transfusion  domain.

With Terumo’s recent acquisition of CaridianBCT, Terumo has become the world leader in Blood Management. The Blood Transfusion division of Terumo is being re-organised under the newly acquired company which has been renamed as TerumoBCT. The Apheresis and Cellular Therapy products of Terumo BCT complements Terumo Penpol products to provide a full range of blood collection, storage and processing solutions for Hospitals and Blood Centres in India and other countries.
