Combino Pharm was founded in 1996 and since then has been devoted to developing and marketing generic medicines for both the retail and hospital markets.
Combino Pharm belongs to Corporación Medichem, a privately held group of companies active in the chemical and pharmaceutical business through its two own subsidiaries, Medichem and Combino Pharm.
The opening of Combino’s own production plant in Malta in 2006, approved by the health authorities in the EU, allowed the company to improve its flexibility and customer-orientated services, and opened new opportunities not only in contract manufacturing but also in supplying products manufactured in the EU.
Generic product market share from day one
It is a well-known fact among companies in the generic product market that being the first generic to arrive on the market is likely to be the main key factor to success in launching a new product.
The strategic location of the Combino Pharm manufacturing plant in Malta offers this possibility to our clients. It allows them to launch new products on the market months before other competitors, enabling them to participate in the market from day one. Being the first is without a doubt the key to being the leader.
