About us

Who are we?

Firstline Pharma is a dynamic, reliable pharmaceutical wholesale distributor that imports and exports a wide range of healthcare products.

We are able to source and supply pharmaceuticals globally and currently have customers located as far afield as the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe.

Our background

We began in 1981 as a community-based pharmacy, Nash Chemists. In 2012 Firstline Pharmacy Limited incorporated Nash Chemists whilst retaining the latter’s trading name; obtaining our Wholesaler Distribution Authorisation the following year.

Since then we have steadily grown our wholesale operations via longstanding commercial relationships and the development of strong new customer and supplier partnerships. In 2018 we launched the new trading name of our dedicated pharmaceutical wholesale and distribution operation, Firstline Pharma.

Today our senior management team has, combined, over 30 years of experience in the sector. Our professionalism has won the trust of clients around the world and seen us expand rapidly, yet we retain the local, small-company approach that means every customer is treated as an individual.
