GSK deal aims to grow business in Asia
DKSH's Business Unit Healthcare, a market expansion services provider for healthcare companies seeking to grow their business in Asia, has signed an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline to provide contract sales services in both private clinics and trade channel for its antibiotic product line.
"To outsource sales and distribution service as part of its product portfolio enables GSK to concentrate on its core competencies while minimizing cost,” said Richard Holloway, vice president, DKSH Healthcare, Hong Kong. “Outsourcing is a global trend and will continue to be significant when pharmaceutical companies require expert support along the value chain."
DKSH, a publicly-traded, global company headquartered in Zurich, focuses on Asia. Of its 680 business locations in 35 countries, 660 of them are in Asia.
