Our History

Somedico was first established as South China Medical Supplies Company in 1951 in Hong Kong by its founders to distribute Schering-Plough (then US Schering) products. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, the company grew and spread its wings to Singapore and Malaysia. The company changed its name from South China Medical Supplies Company to Somedico in 1969.

Incorporated in 1967, Somedico Malaysia grew rapidly in the 1980’s when it started its ethical pharmaceuticals and hospital products marketing and distribution business. The company consolidated in the late 1990’s and refocused its strategic presence in Malaysia. Today, Somedico Malaysia continues to excel in its role as a premier healthcare distributor through its high caliber team of sales and marketing professionals and its in-depth knowledge of customers’ needs and the products it markets.
