In addition, LINK has made a successful bid for the pharmaceutical distribution assets of the RHC company in Tokyo which will trade as the Japanese Branch Office of LINK Healthcare. Japan is the second largest market for pharmaceuticals in the world after the USA, accounting for 11.2 percent of the global pharmaceutical industry.
"We are delighted to have Equity and RHC incorporated into our group and we expect to sign several agreements in the coming months to expand the distribution of existing products across the company's whole footprint. The fact that our existing partners have been quick to recognize our new regional capability and our ability to offer wide access to the leading new economies of the world is a great endorsement for our expansion plans," said Mr Bacon.
The LINK group now controls advanced regional distribution facilities in Australia, South Africa and Singapore with satellite offices in Japan, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
