Achievements and future opportunities
WoyN has quickly established itself as an importer of variety of pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, laboratory reagents and equipment achieving a considerably large share of market in the country. Currently we are in long term supplier-importer agreements and working with a number of manufacturers and suppliers from different countries like India, China, Germany, Turkey, UK and others.
Since the market for drugs, medical and surgical supplies in Ethiopia is high and the demand is undersupplied, we are striving to increase and diversify more imported items. Our market survey and retrospective analysis done in the country at the end of 2013 shows that there are critical gaps in supply of specific drugs, medical supplies, laboratory reagents and medical equipment and this gap has been increasing with the expansion of health infrastructure and high population growth rate in the country. Thus, the company started to register and import these products timely. Its product registration and marketing departments are well coordinated and aligned to achieve the vision, mission and goals set out by WonY Chemicals.
WoyN is staffed with 16 staff members ( i.e., 4 managerial level , 5 technical level and 7 support staff) qualified and experienced employees that can handle international procurement, local market promotion and distribution of medical goods. It has a warehouse and distribution center located in the capital, which fulfills the requirements of the drug administration regulatory authority, and plans to establish more warehouses and distribution centers around major cities over the coming years.
