FROM ANIMAL HEALTH TO MEDICINAL PRODUCTS
Pharmaxim was formed as a spin-off when Pfizer purchased Pharmacia. Together with some employees, former CEO Lars Wahlström and former deputy CEO Ove Ohlson took over parts of the business. In 2004, Pharmaxim’s main activity was veterinary medicine and preventive animal health care.
2009 a big step was taken when Pharmaxim Sales Group (PSG) was started by Pharmaxim’s management together with Christer Bengtsson and Anders Ek who both came from the grocery trade. PSG’s business focused on fast-moving consumer articles in hygiene and beauty. In 2010, the companies merged with the name Pharmaxim AB. A direct result of this was the possibility of selling non-prescription drugs to the grocery store.
From being a company that purchased batches of goods in Europe, Pharmaxim has now focused on getting strong partners both on the customer and the supplier side – thus creating a lasting added value for all in the value chain.
Today, the company as about 30 employees at the head office and warehouse in Helsingborg, in Markaryd, Skørping in Danmark and Turku in Finland.
Since 2009 we are ISO certified and already in 2008 we became an AAA company.
