Pharmaco was established in 1967 to service international pharmaceutical companies wanting to bring their top quality, research-based products to New Zealand. Several years later, Pharmaco expanded its partnership to global medical technology companies and in 2005 Pharmaco (Australia) Limited was established.

These days our extensive range of over 2,500 products includes a mix of medicines; nutritional, emergency rescue, resuscitation and trauma products; as well as diagnostic, monitoring and operating theatre equipment. We are pleased to welcome dentistry to the Pharmaco portfolio.
