Amdipharm: From Pharmacist to Pharma Firm

Amdipharm was set up in April 2003 to find and market niche products in areas of real clinical need, considered too small-or unsexy-for larger players. Wholly-owned by UK-based distributor and wholesaler Waymade Healthcare, which started out as a chain of pharmacies, Amdipharm's management reckons that the group's experience across the drug distribution chain, particularly at the buyer's end, and its proven deal making prowess, will help it achieve its aim of becoming a successful European pharma company.

No single approach is the same, and none has yet proven a clear winner. But all depend on finding the right products.
