Goslar, 04.06.2020

On the occasion of its 15th anniversary, Med-X-Press GmbH, Goslar, as an established pharmaceutical logistics company, presents itself as a system-relevant player in securing the supply of pharmaceuticals. At the beginning, the "garage company" had 3 employees - today it has 330, who stand for reliable and innovative services.

In 2005 Karl-Heinz Dˆrhage realised his business idea with the founding of Med-X-Press GmbH: the dispatch of samples of medicines on behalf of pharmaceutical manufacturers. In the course of rapid expansion, a logistics specialist with a broad portfolio along the value chain of companies in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry was created. The development of new business areas was followed by the continuous expansion of warehouse capacities at seven locations in the region. As part of the internationalisation process, Med-X-Press opened a branch in Switzerland in 2016 and plans are underway to enter the Austrian market.  Quality and safety are on a par with the reliability of service - an essential feature for outsourcing in the pharmaceutical sector. Six of the world's ten leading pharmaceutical manufacturers are among the company's customers, as are a large number of small and medium-sized companies.

Med-X-Press has reacted to the changes in the global pharmaceutical markets with tailor-made offers. Further customer-oriented services are grouped around the core business, storage and distribution, all of which comply with the high legal requirements. The special range of services includes syringe screening and sleeving of vials. Within the framework of the EU anti-counterfeiting guidelines, Med-X-Press invested in two serialization lines that went into operation in 2019/2020.  One business area of particular importance is the demanding narcotics logistics. The first "high security wing" for narcotics was built in 2010 and, due to demand, a further warehouse was added in 2017. The third BtM warehouse is currently being planned.  Med-X-Press has also been successfully active in the IT sector for a long time, among other things with the installation and organisation of B2B and B2C web shops - a service in conjunction with the subsidiary MXP Werbemittel GmbH, which was founded in 2014.  This wide range of services guarantees the logistics experts from Goslar a unique selling point. "Our range of services is our USP in a highly competitive market", says Lars Dˆrhage, managing partner of Med-X-Press GmbH, and adds: "Our customers appreciate the options of combining different modules of our offers".  
The excellent development of the past 15 years was driven by the spirit of the company founder, Karl-Heinz Dˆrhage, who brought his son Lars into the management in 2009. Together with Christian Frede, who has been with the company since 2012, he manages Med-X-Press as a link between pharmaceutical manufacturers and patients. The business policy in combination with the reliable performance of the qualified Med-X-Press team has proven itself, especially in extraordinary times. Questions of digitalisation or the currently discussed security of supply chains and procurement markets are analysed very carefully in Goslar and determine the future strategic orientation of Med-X-Press.
