For almost three decades, City Pharmacy has been synonymous with excellence in all spheres of pharmaceutical and medical distribution in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Founded in 1967 in the UAE federal capital, Abu Dhabi, CityPharmacy has consistently achieved remarkable growth and today commands an overall 30% share of the UAE’s market for pharmaceutical, medical and associated products and equipment. The home of the federal Ministries of Health and Defence, major oil companies and the national university, Abu Dhabi emirate accounts for 65% of the UAE’s medical Pharmaceutical and laboratory business .
In 1969, as its sphere of operations expanded, the company name was changed from Abu Dhabi Drug Stores to Abu Dhabi Medical and Pharmaceutical Establishment. Four years later, two large pharmacies were opened in Abu Dhabi and the nearby emirate of Dubai and the current name was adopted. A third pharmacy is opened very recently in Sharjah.
City Pharmacy is wholly-owned by Dr Abdulrahman Al Mahmeed, a qualified pharmacist and a leading figure in the UAE’s pharmaceutical and medical industry.
Operating through seven divisions, City Pharmacy represents many of the most famous suppliers of pharmaceuticals, laboratory, hospital and dental equipment and consumer products. Backing these divisions is an infrastructure second to none and a highly skilled workforce of 125 professionals, including 16 qualified pharmacists and nine engineers.
City Pharmacy covers the UAE from its head office in Abu Dhabi and offices in Dubai, Sharjah and Al Ain. Linked together by computers - and to the rest of the world through the Internet - these offices enable City Pharmacy to respond quickly and precisely to market and customer needs. A large fleet of delivery vehicles, a sophisticated maintenance workshop and state-of-the-art warehouses in Abu Dhabi, Dubai , Sharjah and Al Ain complete the largest private sector operation in the industry.
