About Abacus Medicine Group

Abacus Medicine Group was founded on the basis of a growing call for competition in the Danish pharmaceutical market to the benefit of Danish hospitals.

Not long after it was founded, Abacus Medicine Group entered the Danish pharmaceutical market. Following this successful entrance, the company expanded its reach to Germany and Sweden. Since then, Abacus Medicine Group has pursued a vigorous and highly successful multi-market strategy, and the parallel import services are now available in 12 European markets with more to come.

Apart from Abacus Medicine Groups’ many active sales markets, the company also has sales offices in 6 European countries: Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Spain and United Kingdom.
