Starting in 1979, “Alkaloid – Pharmacy” has a sector responsible for development and collaboration with foreign companies in the aspect of representation agreements, distribution and warehouses. The many years of success and experience from this sector are a basis for the formation of “Alkaloid Cons Ltd.” Company for turnover and import – export services, which is a successful self-managed company working in the Republic of Macedonia since February 5, 2004. In order to prepare the company for the change of the organization structure and creating complementarity in the activities, “Alkaloid Premazi Ltd. Skopje” (a branch of the company which deals with paints and varnishes) was formed in 2006. It is a separate organizational unit, with which the number of subsidiaries of Alkaloid was raised to 11 (eleven).
