Established in 1994, Cosmofarm is a pharmaceutical wholesale company in Athens, which provides a comprehensive range of pharmaceutical products.

Cosmofarm conducts business with as many as 250 pharmaceutical manufacturers and wholesalers and reported sales of about $14 million for the 2017 fiscal year.
The financial details of the Cosmofarm acquisition haven’t been disclosed.
Cosmos Holdings CEO Gregory Siokas is bullish about the takeover and so are investors who sent Cosmos shares up by 9.4% to $3.50 in Friday’s morning trading session.
“We are excited to announce the closing of this acquisition and to have Cosmofarm’s talented team become part of Cosmos Holdings,” Siokas said. “Cosmofarm will play a key role in increasing sales of our SkyPremium Life product line to pharmacies."
Cosmofarm is in the process of relocating to a new 32,000 square foot facility that features a robotic fulfillment center and offers 20 times the capacity of its old warehouse, according to Siokas.
Cosmos Holdings Inc. is a pharmaceutical wholesaler with offices and warehouses in Thessaloniki, Greece and in Harlow, UK. The Chicago-based company conducts business in Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United Arab Emirates, Denmark, Italy, France, Singapore, Spain, Lebanon, Jordan, Sweden, Poland, the Netherlands, and Greece.
