Cartagena based company Dosfarma is acquired by the British giant Atida

It is one of the largest corporate operations in the history of the Region of Murcia and the biggest ‘exit’ of a Murcian startup.

Dosfarma, the Spanish leading online parapharmacy and pharmacy products, has closed its acquisition by the British investment fund Marcol, owner of the pan-European pharmaceutical firm Atida. This company already acquired in 2019 the main competitor of the Dosfarma, the Albacete based company, Mifarma. Atida thus consolidates its objetive of becoming the largest online pharmacy in the continent.

Dosfarma was founded by Juan Desmonts in 2015 who understood the need to build based on new technologies. The Murcian startup was born with three people and currently employs around 260 employees, who serve more than 25 million customers. Thus, the last fiscal year has closed with a turnover of 52 million euros, which represents an increase of 174% compared to 2019. A continuous rise that will give a result of 90 million euros in sales this year.

By the end of this year they will be finishing the works of the logistics center that is being developed in the Los Camachos Industrial Park in Cartagena, with 20,000 sqm of capacity and an investment of 4.2 million euros.

A few months ago, Dosfarma also managed to become the leading online pharmacy nationwide recognized in the Top 100 Ecommerce.
