United Drug Ireland – Soloist Sponsor
The United Drug Chemical Company was established in 1948, in Ballina, County Mayo, by a group of pharmacists determined to find a more reliable supply of medicines.
Their first big development came in 1950, when the pharmacists convinced Parke-Davis (which later became Pfizer) to supply them directly from London. The agreement set the scene for further expansion along the west coast of Ireland.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, with the purchase of Ayrton Saunders, the company became a national distributer and by 1986 offered the first overnight service to pharmacists. By the early 1990s, through strategic partnerships and acquisitions, the company was able to distribute over the whole of the island of Ireland and, by the end of the century, became the largest Irish wholesaler in the market.
In 2016 United Drug was acquired by the global pharmaceutical distribution company, McKesson and is now part of the largest pharmaceutical distribution company on the globe, giving the company leading international expertise together with huge and diverse business capabilities in the healthcare arena. Today, known as United Drug, and with its corporate headquarters at Citywest, Dublin, the company continues its long tradition of excellence as the market leader in the distribution of healthcare products across Ireland.
