Berlin-Chemie Menarini Poland: over thirty years of passion, dedication, and commitment

In 2023, the pharmaceutical group Menarini celebrated the significant milestone of thirty-one years of operations in Poland. A story that began in 1992, just three years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, when Cavaliere Alberto Sergio Aleotti, leveraging his entrepreneurial vision, acquired the German company Berlin-Chemie. This strategic move not only opened the doors to the German market but also marked the beginning of expansion into Eastern Europe. Today, Berlin-Chemie distributes its pharmaceutical products in over 90 nations and has a consolidated presence, with branches in more than 30 countries.

Over the course of thirty years, Menarini’s Polish division has experienced remarkable growth: from its beginnings when business revolved around a small office in the center of Warsaw, the company has managed to consolidate its position in the market. Today, it boasts 450 employees and a portfolio of over 40 products. In this way, Menarini Poland has earned a place among the top ten pharmaceutical companies in Poland, with a turnover of over 200 million euros.

One of the pillars upon which Berlin-Chemie Menarini Poland’s success is built is its extensive assortment of both over-the-counter and prescription drugs. These products are highly valued by both consumers and healthcare professionals, a testament to the company’s commitment to research and development of cutting-edge therapeutic solutions.

Looking back and seeing how far we’ve come is truly a great satisfaction,” said Joanna Kawecka, General Manager of the Polish division. “Berlin-Chemie Menarini Poland has always sought to be a point of reference on health issues, and managed to become one over the years. Our mission is to create a scientific culture in the Eastern European area, while still maintaining professionalism and active involvement of people. I wish for our entire company to continue to grow with the same positive energy that has brought us this far.
