From GMP-compliant production to classic, full-range human pharmaceutical trading, market leadership in the Austrian veterinary wholesale sector and logistics services for the pharmaceutical industry, all our customers benefit from comprehensive pharmaceutical expertise along the entire value chain.

With the guiding principle "providing a healthy lead", we place our strategic focus on the development of innovative products and services in the healthcare sector.
