Pharmed Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1985 in Overport, Durban by a group of healthcare professionals from previously disadvantaged communities. Existing as a regional pharmaceutical wholesaler in Kwa-Zulu Natal until the acquisition of Amalgamated Pharmaceuticals in October 2011.
In July 2014, Pharmed became a part of Imperial Health Sciences, a division of the Imperial Logistics Group. Imperial Logistics acquired 62% shareholding in Pharmed and 38% belongs to minority shareholders comprising of doctors and pharmacists.
Following this acquisition and integration within the Imperial Health Sciences business, Pharmed opened a state-of-the-art pharmaceutical distribution centre with the capacity to service our vibrant market efficiently and effectively.
This milestone has enhanced our footprint within the Western Cape, with Pharmed leveraging the existing Imperial Logistics infrastructure, capacity and expertise to support our growth and service offering.
The Western Cape branch is a culmination of our vision to become a fully-fledged, independent wholesaler with a service offering on a national basis, that is not aligned to any group or cartel.
Pharmed revealed its new logo, corporate identity and positioning statement “The Independent Choice” in June 2015. Each element of the new brand and visual identity highlights the strategic focus of our core business.
