The South Australian pharmacy group National Pharmacies has announced its top suppliers for 2018
The National Pharmacies Suppliers Awards Evening, held at Adelaide Oval last week, recognised the companies for outstanding support throughout the year.
“Our suppliers form an integral part of who we are as a company,” says Tony Wojciechowski, the Managing Director of National Pharmacies.
“The annual supplier awards evening is our opportunity to thank them for their continued support throughout the year.”
This year the second inductee to the National Pharmacies Lifetime Award was announced.
The award was presented to Andrew & Peter Searcy of Searcy Marketing for their partnership, lasting over 40 years, with National Pharmacies.
Aged over 90, Peter Searcy continues to work three days a week.
The suppliers recognised throughout the evening included Sandoz Pty Ltd, Mylan Australia, 3M, Groupe Clarins and Maui Jim Australia Pty Ltd.
Individuals were also awarded for their service. Brad Newlands (Mimo Pty Ltd) was presented the Optical Award for Service Excellence, Tracey Waye (Sanofi) received the Ethical Award for Service Excellence and Raquel Clarke (Ego Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd) was awarded the Retail Award for Service Excellence.
Mr Wojciechowski said National Pharmacies is looking forward to another year of success, with its suppliers by its side.
“We have had yet another big year with our suppliers and I have no doubt 2019 will be just as exciting working together,” he said.
