Attila Markus, Global Procurement Manager
Missionpharma’s roots in the international pharmaceutical industry have given us decades of experience in sourcing products globally at competitive prices and consistently guaranteed quality.
Our comprehensive sourcing skills allow us to provide exactly the right products at the lowest price to meet precise tender specifications. A proven ability to handle complex supply projects ensures reliable delivery to the end destination, even to the most remote clinics or health posts.
Being a world leader within supply of a wide range of healthcare products, we have to remain competitive in order to maintain our position. The immense complexity of sourcing drives us to keep ourselves constantly up to date on each product. We know the cost drivers; we know the volatility of raw materials as well as the market trends. The purpose is twofold as it enables us to be competitive as well as control the risk of price fluctuations.
We have a strong and well-established network of manufacturers throughout Asia and Europe, which enables us to offer our customers an extensive product range at the most competitive prices. We have our own sourcing offices in Denmark, India and China, offering a team of experts in the field of healthcare procurement.
Handling product sourcing with multiple manufacturers and performing sufficient QA/QC can be substantial tasks. Missionpharma specialises in managing the entire range of activities involved, and offers a single-point-of-contact approach throughout the entire project.
