international operations

Sopharma Trading d.o.o is a part of Sopharma Trading Group – one of the leading group of companies, operating in the healthcare sector in Bulgaria. Our operations started in 2015 following the mission of Sopharma Trading to become a strong, modern and vertically-integrated regional player.

We started our operations in Serbia by distributing our exclusive brands – Sopharma, Medica, Jamieson, SVR, US Pharmacia. In 2017 our business grew by acquiring 70% shares of Lekovit and in 2019 we became 100% owner of the company. In January 2019 Sopharma Trading announced acquisition of minority shares portfolio in Lekovit d.o.o. thus becoming an owner of 100% shares in the Serbian pharma distributor. 

In March the company consolidated its operations in Serbia under its main corporate brand thus solidifying the fundament for expansion in the whole Eastern European region. The re-branding came in several stages, where the acquired by the Bulgarian investor Serbian wholesaler Lekovit, took the name of its mother company and was transformed into Sopharma Trading d.o.o. 

Another key development of Sopharma Trading’s operations in Serbia and the region was the implementation of a fully integrated ERP system for business process management in 2019. The new ERP system is a solid fundament for efficient management of operations and introduced several innovations to the local Serbian market bringing benefits to customers since day 1 of its official launch.

Among the digital novelties implemented with the new ERP was the B2B website developed on Hybris platform that enhanced state-of-art digital customer service to company’s pharmacy customers. Thus, Sopharma Trading became the first healthcare company in Serbia to make a significant investment in digital services.

In the beginning of 2020 Sopharma Trading completed another large-scale project in Serbia with the opening of a new distribution center in Pukovac, Nis region. The investment in Pukovac amounted to EUR 6.8 million and was another step in the development of the company as a strategic investor in the region.

The new logistic base started serving Sopharma Trading’s partners in the region of South-Eastern Serbia and later on Eastern, Western and Southern parts of the country since the beginning of January. One of the key benefits for the company’s customers in the region is the significantly reduced time of order processing. Also, following the Good Distribution Practice standards, the warehouse base provides an optimal storage microclimate with a high-end Siemens building management system. 

We will continue to strive to be leaders and innovators bringing the evolution in healthcare on national and regional scale.
