The PHOENIX Group is one of the top five pharmaceutical wholesalers in the world. It operates exclusively in Europe with its headquarters in Mannheim, Germany. PHOENIX's wholesale activities cover most of the major European markets, and it commands a leading position in the "emerging countries".

PHOENIX UK was born in November 1998 with the combined acquisition of
L. Rowland & Co. Ltd based in Wrexham and Philip Harris Medical Ltd in Birmingham. The acquisition of a number of further regional wholesalers followed and these were all combined to form one wholesaling company, PHOENIX Healthcare Distribution Ltd. The UK headquarters is based at Runcorn in Cheshire, from which the corporate service divisions support the local business activities.

One of the major business objectives is total customer satisfaction, and this is delivered from the platform: "All Business is Local". The individual wholesale depots are structured and empowered to provide the local service that customers require, with the support of the central corporate services.

Investment is continually made within the warehouses and logistic functions to ensure that a high level of service is delivered, in combination with cost leadership.

PHOENIX is a strong supporter of Numark, a company owned by PHOENIX, which has the aim of promoting and marketing the interests of community pharmacy. PHOENIX Healthcare Distribution provides the OTC offering to pharmacy.

PHOENIX UK wholesale activities cover many market segments of the healthcare system - pharmacy, GPs and hospital. In each segment, we strive to provide the highest quality service and back-up support required to allow our customers to flourish in the evolving healthcare system.

Our aim is to be the wholesaler of choice.
