"We are very pleased to announce a renewal of our partnerships with Vitaflo International, Allerderm Laboratories and Qiagen GmbH for continued distribution of their products in the Nordics. The agreements, which encompass several medical nutrition, dermatology and women's health products, means we will continue our joint efforts, building our positive results in the Nordic markets. These products are well in line with our key growth areas and strategic approach of continuing to strengthen our pharmaceutical products portfolio by entering solid, long-term partnerships," says Tom Rönnlund, Chief Executive Officer of Navamedic.
Navamedic will continue to market and distribute the products as part of its diversified pharmaceutical and healthcare portfolio, using existing sales channels, licensing- and distribution rights. The distribution agreements with Vitaflo International for medical nutrition products helping patients with different metabolic deficiency diagnoses and with Qiagen for the premature birth diagnostic test Amnisure® have both been prolonged by five years, while the partnership with Allerderm Laboratories for distribution of several dermatology and allergy products has been renewed for three years.
"The renewal of these agreements underscores the strength and breadth of Navamedic's marketing and distribution channels, as well as our strong cooperation with our partners. Our continued hard work within the Nordic market has provided us with a solid footing that allows us to maintain and renew long-term partnerships, as well as seek out new ones as a trusted partner. We see great potential for the products and are very happy to continue our work under renewed agreements," says Rönnlund.
