Halle/Saale, 2 December 2010 – The Zur Rose Pharma GmbH, a pharmaceutical management service provider for pharmacies, is celebrating its fifth anniversary. The service company had built a highly modern logistics centre in just 16 weeks with an investment of nine million Euros in Halle (Saale). The company started with 21 employees who provided for around 8,500 customers – and now a staff of 76 attends to Germany’s largest mail order pharmacy’s 1.7 million loyal mail order customers in Germany and beyond.
The first package came off the conveyor in Zur Rose Pharma GmbH’s logistics centre in Halle on 17 December 2004. The company is responsible for the distribution and pharmaceutical management service for leading mail order pharmacies in Germany like the VfG – Versandapotheke für Gesundheit and the Zur Rose pharmacy and quickly delivers prescription and non-prescription medications directly to their customers’ home address or address of choice with discretion and safety. In addition to the logistics, the Zur Rose Pharma supports their customers in the area of marketing and purchasing.
“We are proud that we have been able to optimally assist our customers over the past five years and continually grow with them on their path,” said Walter Oberhänsli, Manager of the Zur Rose Pharma GmbH, at the company anniversary. “With our experience and expertise as a service provider for pharmacies, we would like work with an expanded range of customers in the future and work as a partner in pharmaceutical management for doctors, health care insurance companies, care facilities and health care companies.”
In addition to the three storey administration building, Zur Rose Pharma’s service centre offers a 3,000 sqm hall with around 8,000 storage spaces for the logistics. In order to process the daily order volume of up to 10,000 orders quickly and with a high degree on quality, Zur Rosa Pharma relies on a modern computer-aided retrieval system. The building project was supported by the business development department of the German State Saxony-Anhalt and the Halle (Saale) economic support.
