The Galenica Group is taking over the physicians wholesaler Pharmapool Ltd. through its own pharmaceutical wholesale Company Galexis Ltd.

The company will continue to offer its services on the market under its current name and for management purposes will be integrated into Galenica Santé as part of the Services Business sector, which will be able to exploit attractive potential synergies in the future. Pharmapool has a staff of some 100 employees and records sales volume of over CHF 100 million.
