Jean-Yves Richard

General Manager, Laborex

As a subsidiary of Eurapharma, Laborex has no different mission or values than any other Laborex entities in the world. Our strategy is the same as well, namely to offer as many products as possible according to the market needs with the best quality and pricing. There are different ranges of products in terms of pricing, and you can find the best quality while offering the best value for money for consumers. Our strategy is to offer the best quality and value for money at every stage of the value chain. Our business is not that complex and can be broken down into: importing, warehousing, and distributing products to authorized retailers. The complexity lies in ensuring the best quality at origin and maintaining it until the end of the chain while serving customers as best possible. Our strategy is to ensure we offer the best quality and service to all the stakeholders for the benefit of end users and the health of the Angolan people. Our positioning is to bring quality for money and offer the best choice of products. No matter the price range of a stakeholder, we can find the best available product for them.

Sergio Luciano

CEO, Australpharma

Our main purpose is to bring healthcare closer to people. We operate in three major business areas: pharmaceutical distribution, healthcare consumable material, and diagnostics. We have also made significant investments in past years, with global investments of around to EUR9 million since then, including numerous investments in IT systems, logistic infrastructure, and distribution networks. For example, we have refrigerated transport to guarantee the quality of products during distribution. Because of their sensitivity, our warehouses are regulated in terms of temperatures and are constantly monitored in other to adhere to pharmaceutical storage and distribution regulations. One important aspect is cultivating local talent, and one of the criteria for our expats is the transference of knowledge. Local talents are the future of the company, which has led to an essential process of people development and training. Our group has been ranked first among pharma companies in Portugal, and in 2021 we included our companies outside Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, and Guinea Bissau. It was remarkable to see the company’s top ranking in Angola, and we believe that the investment in people’s capacity and relation to company projects is fundamental for the sustainability of the company.
