Chairman’s Address

Dimitrios Pentafragas


Fifty – two years ago, joined by a small team with limited resources but lots of hopes and dreams, we laid the foundations for what was soon to build up to a lifetime aspiration: a powerful, dynamic Greek pharmaceutical company. The pharmaceutical industry is vital not only to national economy, but also for the national medical and pharmaceutical communities, the Greek people and the preservation of the great blessing that is Health.




Research Means Life

Our strong drive to excel in research and development as well as make a crucial contribution to the education and smooth integration of young scientists led us to create the most significant – and the only privately owned – Experimental and Applied Biomedical Research laboratory in Greece. ELPEN’s Experimental Research & Training Center is the most important privately owned center for education and translational research in the Balkans, and among the ten most important in its category in Europe. It is also the first and only Greek laboratory, and among the first in Europe, to obtain the UEMS/NASCE certification.
