Company origins

The history of Pharmaceutical Company Zakłady Farmaceutyczne UNIA Spółdzielnia Pracy dates back to 1937. A group of Warsaw pharmacists founded the UNIA Users’ Cooperative for Pharmaceutical Purchases in order to control the brokerage between drug manufacturers and distributors. The Users’ Cooperative commenced operation on 28th January 1938.
After the outbreak of World War II, the Cooperative was partially resolved, however, after the war, it resumed its business activity in Warsaw, to eventually convert into the Pharmaceutical Cooperative UNIA in 1950.

The development of the Cooperative and the systematically built product portfolio necessitated the decision on building a production plant with an office complex at Chłodna Street, which was completed in 1967.

The newly built facility made it possible to produce almost all forms of medicines. During this period, the three essential profiles of medical product lines manufactured by Pharmaceutical Company UNIA evolved, i.e. dermatological products, represented by Alantan, Alntan Plus and Cepan, neurological and psychiatric products and antitussive products.
