CHEMSOURCE & GOPHARMA

strong players join forces
We are proud to announce the acquisition of CHEMSOURCE SA (Lugano, Switzerland) and GOPHARMA S.R.L. (Peschiera Borromeo, Milan, Italy), a move that will extend DCS Pharma’s European footprint to Italy to complement growth opportunities in this market. All three companies are specializing in the distribution of active pharmaceutical ingredients. DCS Pharma is active worldwide, while both Chemsource and Gopharma are mainly focused on the Italian market.

DCS PHARMA AG ACQUIRES 100% OF BOTH COMPANIES WITH ALL EMPLOYEES JOINING THE DCS TEAM

Beat Berger, CEO of DCS Pharma, says:

"The acquisition of Chemsource and Gopharma is an excellent strategic fit that supports our business. We recognize Italy as a key market and are happy to strengthen our expertise to provide solutions to both our customers and suppliers. I am impressed by the focus and the passion of the teams belonging to both companies; their market knowledge and long-term relationships consolidated with Italian customers will help to further grow our position in the region.”

Get better access to Italian market
The combined portfolios of the three companies will offer customers a wider choice of API and better access to a wide range of expertise through DCS Pharma’s worldwide network. These acquisitions will also grant our partners better access to the Italian market, thanks to the contacts and in-depth market knowledge of our new colleagues.

We are convinced that these mergers will strengthen our collaboration with you and your company. We invite you to challenge us.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: NOTHING WILL CHANGE FOR OUR PARTNERS

Chemsource SA will keep its offices in Lugano, Gopharma S.R.L. will keep its offices in Peschiera Borromeo, and both will continue to provide their outstanding services to our customers in Italy. Your contact partners remain the same and are happy to answer any questions that may arise from these mergers.


Operating in the pharmaceutical field for more than ten years now, Chemsource has created strong partnerships with international API and intermediate producers.

We have consolidated long-term relationships with our Italian customers and strive to be a synonym for reliability. Searching for new sources; procuring and supplying raw materials; offering technology transfer, business consultancy, and commercial as well as regulatory assistance are our core activities.

Gopharma focuses on the trade of active ingredients for the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. We concentrate on the Italian market and support our customers in the search for alternative sources for any range and type of API.
