...A brief History
Fidson Healthcare Plc started operations on March 1, 1995 as a local distributor of pharmaceutical products. Barely a year after, the company moved into an importation of its own brand of finished medicines. The company set up its first local manufacturing facility in July 2002. In March 2005, Fidson became the first company in sub-Saharan Africa to manufacture Antiretroviral (ARVs) drugs.In February 2007, Fidson set up a second manufacturing facility and ceded the former manufacturing facility to an international joint venture project, which led to setting up of Ecomed Pharma Limited.
In November of the same year, the company received the NIS ISO 9001:2000 certification of its Quality Management System by the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON). In 2008, the company was listed on the floor of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, NSE to become a publicly quoted company. In 2009, the company won the Financial Standard Sector Leader Award and received the NIS ISO 9001:2008 Certification in 2011.
The tremendous and phenomenal growth of Fidson, without a doubt has been guided by providence and a team of young, passionate, dedicated and goal-driven field personnel, seasoned managers and a visionary management team driven by a passion for excellence and credibility.
