What do we do?
For over 30 years A1 Pharmaceuticals Plc has been successful by creating extra profit Opportunities for pharmacists throughout the UK. A1 Pharmaceuticals Plc is now the leading name in the supply of discounted surgical dressings and medical devices in the EU (European Union).
The product range includes major branded surgical dressings manufactured by large international companies eg Smith & Nephew and Systagenix, as well as our successful A1 own label range eg crepe bandages and surgical gloves. Other product categories include ostomy, colostomy, diagnostics, syringes, aesthetics & dermal fillers, nutritional drinks and branded EU parallel imported pharmaceuticals.
EU Parallel imported pharmaceuticals are branded pharmaceuticals manufactured by major international companies eg Glaxo Smith Kline which are sourced in one EU country eg Spain where they are cheaper and sold to another EU country eg UK at a discount to our pharmacy customers.
We have a UK Medicines Health Regulatory authority (MHRA) manufacturer’s licence to repack and assemble a large portfolio of European parallel imported pharmaceutical licensed products, which are then sold into UK pharmacies at a discount compared to what would otherwise be available direct from the UK manufacturer.
Why deal with A1?
We offer extra profit opportunities to pharmacies and other pharmaceutical wholesalers throughout the EU on a wide range of branded surgical dressings, medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Keys to our success are a fast and reliable service within a friendly and professional business environment. A speedy service with an extensive range of products, lower out-of-stock levels, and more unique profit opportunities for our customers than any other short-line and discount pharmaceutical wholesalers enables A1 Pharmaceuticals Plc to consistently out perform their competitors.
Across the range our prices are lower than our rivals, with better availability and wider choice. Our discounts start at a minimum 12 percent compared to the industry standard maximum 10 percent discount, and can be as high as an incredible 60 percent.
Because we were founded and are led by a pharmacist, we are dedicated to both the professional of pharmacy and the industry it supports. We scientifically monitor delivery times and out of stock levels to ensure that we are achieving the efficiency and standards required by our customers and operate a fully temperature controlled warehouse and delivery fleet to ensure all products are procured, stored and delivered in accordance with EU guidelines.
We are not only the No 1 wholesaler of choice in the EU for woundcare products and surgical dressings, but also continue to expand our own label and exciting parallel import licence portfolio.
Supporting our A1 own label OTC range is rewarded not only by a generous 47% profit on return for the retail pharmacist, but also the loyalty of only being available from pharmacies.
Are you having difficulty in sourcing major branded products at right discount? Why not tap into our 30+ years experience and benefit from our extensive international business relationships. Some of the most successful names in EU pharmacy use A1 Pharmaceuticals Plc as an extension of their own purchasing and procurement team when sourcing new or difficult products at the right discount.
A1 Parallel Trade Policy:
It is the policy of A1 Pharmaceuticals Plc to always source stock from the UK manufacturer or authorized distributors where-ever possible. Only when we can not source the product via this route will we actively look to import or parallel trade.
