Our Structure

Group Structure

Grupo Dimed includes the Panvel pharmacy chain, Dimed medication distributors and the Lifar pharmaceutical laboratory.

In April 2014, the Group launched one of its boldest projects yet, its new headquarters in Eldorado do Sul along the BR-290 federal highway, an important link between Porto Alegre and the rest of Rio Grande do Sul state. Every detail of the venture is sustainable and features Brazil’s most modern distribution center, with cutting edge technology and completely revamped organizational structure. The DC covers an area of 17,000 m2 and invested heavily in Knapp equipment imported from Austria, considered some of the best in the world. The center also has 5,000 separations channels, 21 docks, cold storage and a fully automated line; in other words, absolutely no paper is used in the process. The administrative building also features an innovative and sustainable design, with natural lighting and automated air-conditioning. Its internal areas also have fewer walls, facilitating circulation and communication. The support area beside the administrative building also houses a restaurant and leisure area. The two structures, along with the parking lot, occupy an area of almost 10,000 square meters. Its innovation at the service of quality, reliability and productivity.

Grupo Dimed’s new home represents a significant step in the future of its business. A long-term investment that ensures safe growth for years to come, aimed at delivering well-being in all its services with agility and quality.
