PIEX aims to become one of the first actors in the distribution of medicines and more globally in the supply of care on the African Continent.

In pursuing the objective of streamlining and simplifying the steps between manufacturers and the end customer, PIEX intends to become a major player in the short term in distribution and to allow equitable access to medicines, medical devices, health and hygiene products in Africa and beyond.

By its activity, PIEX is at the crossroads of many roads. Our suppliers are manufacturers located in Europe, Asia and America. When we qualify them as partners, we define together services that we offer “à la carte”.

Our wholesale and pharmacy customers reside mainly in Africa. We also consider them as our partners and are anxious to meet their expectations.

To meet their needs, we provide a wide range of medicines, food supplements, infant formulations and hygiene and care products.

We strive to provide a high quality, fast service with effective claims management.


Between manufacturers and our customers, we manage financial and product flows with over 50 import and export countries.
