PIEX MEETS A REAL NEED: IMPROVING ACCESS TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS PRODUCTS IN AFRICA
Founded in 1979 by Robert Jamain, the Pharmaceutical Import Export Company – PIEX – was acquired in July 2017 as part of a project led by Bertrand Talbotier and supported by a group of investors led by LBO France. PIEX has since developed very quickly through organic growth and a first external growth with the acquiring of PharmaCDI, also a distribution player in West Africa.
