70 years of Kemofarmacija

In 2017, we were celebrating our 70th anniversary. Ever since the company was founded in 1947, we have strived to ensure a reliable, safe, timely, and comprehensive supply of medicine, medical devices, and other health related products for pharmacies, hospitals, and other health-care institutions. In the recent years, we have expanded our business with several services for customers and suppliers. As the leading wholesaler of medicinal products with full operational capacity, we are a vital link in the supply chain of medicinal products, connecting suppliers and patients.

Our work is based on the common ICARE values. Among the values, which connect us and bring us together within the McKesson Europe Group are integrity, priority care for customers, a great sense of responsibility, respect, and excellence.

We are aware that our journey towards excellence will never end, so we strive to maintain our quality and to constantly implement innovations and improvements.

This jubilee year is additionally enriched by activities that reinforce social responsibility, encourage a healthy lifestyle, and help people on their path to health and better life quality. It is only in a healthy and encouraging environment that we may progress and enjoy our common successes.
