Dimed

One of Brazil‘s foremost medication distributors

Dimed was created on September 21, 1967, when two of Rio Grande do Sul’s largest pharmacy chains, Panitz and Velgos, embarked on a joint venture, founding a central purchasing and logistics organization to supply both chains as well as other clients in the region. It is currently one of Brazil’s main medication distributors, catering to three states in the south of the country.
