I notice with great pleasure how long our collaboration with Farmexim is. During all this time, Farmexim was a trustful partner that understood and supported us through rough times and together we managed to always find the most appropriate solutions for a proper collaboration, advantageous for both parties, a true partnership! I am glad to notice that Farmexim is a mature company by looking at the way it functions and cooperates with its partners, a company which learned that simplicity and modesty are not defects, but virtues, proving to have a deep respect for its business partners and for their patients. Thank you, Farmexim that during all this time you never stopped to be our partner and I would like you to be successful and grateful for the good things you have done so far, continuing to have a prosperous business, based on long-lasting partnerships and trustful relationships.
Farmexim was and still is a bold idea that my friend, Ovidiu Buluc, managed to change into a powerful business, business which currently represents one of the most inspired alternatives for the pharmaceutical market in Romania. Farmexim is by far the most important Romanian investor in the distribution of pharmaceutical products in Romania.
Currently, Antibiotice SA is one of the first 15 suppliers of Farmexim and between our teams a synergy was created, which will allow us to develop our business relationships for several times during the next period.
I recently visited a few of Farmexim logistics units. They amaze through their modernity, implemented technology, functionality and good practices which it is impossible not to notice in everything that Farmexim has turned into. And this is what gives us confidence in the future that we started to define together.
The beginning of my experience on the Romanian pharmaceutical market dates back to September 1987 and I have witnessed the beginning of Farmexim company, which was the first private distribution partner of the company I was working for at that time, such as I have witnessed the beginning of the free market economy. Ever since, I had worked for other companies as well and during each and every professional experience, Farmexim was one of the main partners.
But before the story, there was the idea and the idea of Ovidiu Buluc was a good one at the right time and it never stopped functioning. he managed to make his vision come true and his actions influenced the organization a lot, since the business relationship at all levels was always based on strong mutual confidence, on commitment and respect. This provided the framework for an increase and development that most of the times were above the market for both partners. A market which was always challenging, but also full of satisfactions for serious entrepreneurs.
From the first offices downtown and from its initial organization, Farmexim is currently a very different company and a lot bigger, but in which the spirit of a fruitful cooperation is still lingering.
Bristol-Myers Squibb is a biopharmaceutical company which carries out activities worldwide and the measure of our success as a leader is given by the difference that we bring in the lives of our patients. We develop drugs meant to help patients from all over the world to beat serious illnesses. In order to fulfil our mission until the very end we need trustful partners whose activities are governed by the same principles of correctness and prioritisation of the patients’ benefits, such as Bristol-Myers Squibb. The cooperation of more than 20 years with Farmexim team provided us the possibility to be available more rapidly and more efficiently where our drugs are needed. Congratulate the Farmexim for its professionalism in Romania and we are convinced that through the powerful partnership between our companies we will continue to be close to our patients in the future as well.
Farmexim is a very special partner for us, maybe because our evolution is linked to the development of Farmexim. In 2005 when we began to cooperate, we found in Farmexim a standpoint and a landmark. It was for us like a brother that you can always count on through rough times and who provides you with safety for the simple reason that he is right beside you. I have always admired the business model, the courage and the vision that they have proved many times along the way. Today, they are still the same reliable partners that we share our rough times with and that we enjoy celebrating with. Especially because we already know that they were part of the success.
It is our sincere delight to be partners with Farmexim company almost from the very beginning of their journey to success. It is a true pleasure to work with such a modern, dynamic company represented by talented people. During all those years Farmexim has been a reliable partner, committed to high standards of service and professionalism.
The value of a partnership is given by the value of the people who build it. I can say that we started our common path almost at the same time and the first collaboration with Farmexim dates back to 1994, when the first Tinos pharmacy opened. At that time, Farmexim was one of the few warehouses from where I managed to get supplies – I smile when I think about the fact that I was walking personally to the Farmexim headquarters in Piața Rosetti; I had the habit to place the orders on a piece of paper that later on was taken over by the nice staff at Farmexim. Later on, when the pharmaceutical market developed at the same as we did, we discovered that Farmexim was reliable partner which managed to support me as independent pharmacy, offering solutions for my problems. Farmexim is still one of our main collaborators, a partner which provides performance and trust and I intend to keep it close for the years to come.
My relationship with Farmexim started to develop many years ago, dating back to 1992, the period in which this company was having its headquarters in Piata Rosetti. The business relationship that we developed throughout this time started from the family, me a pharmacist to be and my mother already a pharmacist with a wide experience, needed to find a reliable partner in a period of great challenges. At the very beginning, I looked at this relationship from the perspective of my mother’s apprentice, whom developed a professional and commercial relationship with Farmexim, a relationship based on trust. Currently, I see it from the perspective of the businessmen having its own pharmacy chain, but my perception about Farmexim did not change at all – a company that you can truly rely on, with a team of professionals, a real dynamic company in constant expansion (products–markets–people).
