History of Medifon
Medifon was founded in 1981 to serve as a wholesaler for special pharmacy equipment and OTC products. Medifon is owned by The Association of Finnish Pharmacies. During the first years Medifon sold for example pharmaceutical ingredients (ibuprofen, ASA, caffeine).
Over the years, Medifon has been a supplier for wide variety of special equipment for every day use in pharmacies, for example for small scale manufacturing and processing of pharmaceuticals.
Medifon was a small company until early 2010’s. Four employees and a 20 m2warehouse room were located in AFP building in central Helsinki.
In the beginning of 2012 strategy change was made so that the company is able to support business of AFP member pharmacies better. The company is also ready to face the changes in operational environment. Product and service portfolio growth and distribution development have enabled the company to multiply its turnover and number of employees. Nowadays Medifon is one of the most significant healthcare business companies in Finland.
Growth in operational volume has taken the company farther away from the city. Current modern premises at Espoo Juvanmalmi provide possibilities for operational volume growth of the company for a long period of time.
