Frequently asked questions

Can you provide us with a list of your direct manufacturer accounts?

Komtur has direct accounts with many of the major global pharmaceutical manufacturers – and even privileged accounts with many of them. This list is constantly changing. However, in the event that we don’t currently have the required direct account, with your project in hand we will negotiate the comparator supply with the manufacturer and set up a direct (or an ‘as direct as possible’) supply route.

In our 60 years in the market, we’ve built up an impeccable industry reputation as a partner that doesn’t drop the ball!
