The company originally served research-based biopharma in the countries of the West Balkans and the Baltic states, but subsequently expanded beginning in 2017 to cover the larger countries of CEE (Bulgaria, Czech, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia). The company entered Russia in October, 2019 when it took over Alexion’s Russian operations, and later, in Spring 2020 the company also purchased a well-established Russian specialty distributor / agent of good reputation.
