Production & Warehouse

We have production facilities and warehouses located in Budapest, Hungary and Alkmaar, the Netherlands. As we re-sell medicine across Europe, most of our products need to be repackaged according to their new destination (end-market). Our Product & Warehouse staff perform the un- and repacking of the medicine according to the legislation in the new end-market. The purpose of the Warehouse is to receive and store all products, medicine, medical devices and printed and/or regular packaging materials, and then put them into our storage facility. When the products are finished in production, they are sent either to our own Abacus Medicine Group storage place/distribution center in Berlin or Alkmaar or to our customers.
