A Leading International Pharmaceutical Company located in Greece

The story of the Gerolymatos International Pharma began almost 100 years ago in 1923, when pharmacist, Nikos Gerolymatos, opened his own pharmacy in the heart of Athens. The pharmacy became one of the largest in the country and the small family business grew. Guided by the dedication of its founder, the entrepreneurial spirit of his son, Panagiotis, and now his grandson, Nicholas, Gerolymatos International, is today, one of the most historical, traditional and well-regarded family businesses in the Greek healthcare industry.
