Patriciu Andrei Achimas – Cadariu, Minister of Health
In December 2015 Antibiotice celebrates 60 years of activity and, as you said it yourself, these are years of Romanian continuity and performance.
Antibiotice is a leading Romanian producer which brings an important contribution in sustaining the healthcare system, its generic drugs being appreciated both on the domestic market and on the international market.
Recently I had the opportunity to discuss with you about the company’s future and the opportunity to develop a partnership between Antibiotice and the Universities of Medicine and Pharmacy with R & D sites, located in the main academic institutions across the country.
On the occasion of the 60 years celebration, I’d like to wish both you and your colleagues to be successful on the local pharmaceutical market and in your efforts to develop on the international market.
Tudor Ciurezu, President of SIF Oltenia
I’d like to congratulate the entire executive management team and all employees for the work done and all you have accomplished so far.
It was not easy to stay on the market for 60 years. It isn’t, nor will it be easier to stay among the leading drug manufacturers. The 4th position occupied by the company among generic drug manufacturers is praiseworthy. I sincerely wish you to reach first place!
Sorin Dimitriu, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Bucharest
I am honored to join all those who congratulate you today, on the occasion of celebrating 60 years of activity. It is a real pleasure to praise you on the excellent results of the company you run obtained thanks to the modern, proactive style of management, to a solid organizational culture, the ambition to face the challenges of the market and determination to find solutions when others “disarm”.
Swimming in the murky waters of the future can be done successfully by those who have solutions to steer their business beyond the hazards generated by the macroeconomic environment. I am persuaded that Antibiotice will be a winner! What you have achieved these years gives me the certainty of success!
His Beatitude Daniel, Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church
We have the great pleasure to congratulate you on your anniversary, for the six decades of pursuing the noble mission of restoring health to so many people and being a landmark not only for the this community, but also for national pharmaceutical industry.
Over the years, Antibiotice added in its pharmaceutical prescriptions a grain of the faith, hospitality and the intelligence of the people living in this place blessed with many churches and monasteries.
