About Palb Pharmaceuticals

About Us

Palb Pharmaceuticals has evolved from a small fast growing company to a medium sized company holding a respectable presence in the distribution sector of the pharmaceutical industry. Palb was formed in 1991 as a limited liability company and has since held on to this status. We deliver quality yet affordable pharmaceutical products to the health sector in Ghana.

We have three office locations. One in Accra which is the headquarters and responsible for the corporate but with specific focus for the Eastern, Volta and Greater Accra regions, another in Kumasi that takes care of activities in the Northern sector of Ghana comprising Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern, Upper West and Upper East regions a third office is in Takoradi which carries out activities in Western and Central regions. Our marketing network stretches across the length and breadth of the country. Sales are garnered from over 300 institutional establishments and in excess of 1000 retail points.


In the past years Palb has experienced an active growth, establishing business partnerships with Lek, (a Sandoz Company) in Slovenia and Lifescan Johnson and Johnson of USA. In addition to these partner companies we also have trade ties with Pharmalab Inc. in Canada and Aland Nutraceuticals of Jiangsu China of which we enjoy mutual cooperation.

Our business with Lek (a Sandoz Company) spans over ten years cooperation, which has led to the establishment of strong brands on the Ghanaian pharmaceutical market. In an overcrowded competitive market place we have envisioned a focus marketing approach to our delivery and currently we are market leaders in two products in the antihypertensive and anti infective segments of the market. Our business with Lifescan focuses on Diabetes management and we have exclusive distribution rights to the One Touch Brand of products (Glucometer and Strips) with market leadership.

In combination with our product Dexel (a brand of Glimepiride) we seek cooperation with an Insulin producing company in order that we would provide a total solution to diabetes management in Ghana.In a bid to have a wider market appeal we have diversified our portfolio to incorporate Medical Consumables including Surgical Gloves, Cotton Wool, Absorbent Cotton Gauze, IV Cannula, Crepe Bandage and so forth which we source from the Asian markets.

Our People

We have in our human resource portfolio 20 employees with diverse expertise which enriches the company’s outlook.
