New Facility & Expanded Services Simplify Access for Manufacturers

AmerisourceBergen’s Innomar Strategies, a leading service provider in the Canadian specialty market, is now providing U.S. manufacturers access to the Canadian healthcare market through its new 160,000-square-foot distribution center coupled with its fully-licensed wholesale and import expertise.

The Canadian healthcare industry has historically been difficult for smaller and mid-tier healthcare manufacturers to access due to government regulation complexities. As a result of these regulations and the substantial investment needed to establish a Canadian-based business, reaching Canada’s 35 million population has been a distant prospect for many manufacturers.

Innomar Strategies provides customized third-party warehouse and logistics solutions to clients who would otherwise be unable to operate in Canada. Under the company’s establishment license, Innomar Strategies acts as an importer for manufacturers who do not have a physical presence in the country.

In addition to their licensing and import capabilities, Innomar Strategies’ new state of the art distribution facility provides clients with an end-to-end solution. The facility is:

  • Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliant
  • Comprised of distinct specialty environments, including validated fridges and freezers
  • Controlled substance and narcotics storage
  • Fully temperature controlled
  • Mapped and monitored twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week
  • Equipped to monitor and track expiration dates

“By making the intricacies of logistics easier for manufacturers, Innomar Strategies serves as a seamless extension of the customer’s business to provide worry-free, turnkey distribution services,” says Todd Soltysiak, Senior Director of Third Party Logistic Services for Innomar Strategies. “Instead of foreign manufacturers investing in real estate, hiring staff and purchasing infrastructure resources, Innomar Strategies can support entrance into Canada by turning fixed costs into variables that will ebb and flow with business needs.”

Innomar Strategies is licensed by Health Canada as an importer and wholesaler. With a newly expanded distribution footprint and related investments, manufacturers can expand product access while Innomar Strategies handles the logistical needs and Canadian-specific infrastructure requirements. The company is committed to expanding access for patients and manufacturers safely, securely and on-time.

Innomar Strategies is a division of AmerisourceBergen – one of the world’s largest and most experienced pharmaceutical distributors.
