Our history

 

Cymedica was founded in 1995 by Ing. Alexander Brányik Sr. Its first contract was a regional representation of American Home Products (which included Fort Dodge Animal Health, among others), which a year earlier bought Cyanamid, a company headquartered in Vienna. The aim of the newly established company was to continue successful business activities in the Czech and Slovak Republics.

 

On April 27, 1995, the company was registered in the Commercial Register of the Czech Republic.

 

The new company name is Cymedica = CYanamid + MEDICAments.

 

At the beginning of its existence, the main business for Cymedica was anticoccidials and antibiotics for livestock.

 

The following year, the company leased retail space in Prague and at the same time built its own warehouse in Hořovice. The organizational unit for Slovakia was established in Trebišov, East Slovakia.

 

Cymedica has also become very active in the segment of prevention and treatment of companion animals and successfully traded in biopreparations and drugs by Fort Dodge Animal Health and Roche. In the following year, Cymedica acquired exclusive representation for poultry biopreparations and became active in the segment of veterinary laboratory diagnostics.

 

In 1998, the Slovak organizational unit changed into an independent company Cymedica SK s.r.o. and moved to new self-owned premises in Zvolen. The following year, the Czech headquarters was moved to new administrative premises in Hořovice, where the entire company is headquartered. At that time, the company’s development strategy was also defined with an emphasis on portfolio development and the profit of new business territories for the next few years.

 

The new strategy was successfully implemented and in 2000 Cymedica expanded to Ukraine, where it opened a subsidiary in Kiev. At the same time, the first technological line for the production of its own antibiotic premixes in Hořovice was completed, and Cymedica became the holder of market authorization registrations for the first line of these products and also obtained new exclusive contracts with new suppliers.

 

The rapid development of the company required new, modern premises, the construction of which began at the headquarters in Hořovice. The new warehouse and production of powder and premix molds was completed in 2002, when Cymedica also obtained key GMP and GDP certificates in accordance with the new drug legislation. The product portfolio was expanding with exclusive representation for the import and sale of clinical diets and pet food. Subsequently, Cymedica opened a new subsidiary in Budapest, Hungary.

 

In the following period, the management was dedicated to improving quality and the company obtained ISO 9001 certification.

 

In 2003, the marketing department started publishing its own professional magazine called Herriot for veterinarians, which has been in circulation ever since.

 

A historically important milestone, the accession of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary to the European Union took place in 2004. One of the consequences were significant changes in the legislation affecting Cymedica’s business activities, when on the one hand the import of part of the portfolio from third countries was terminated, on the other hand the importing options from EU countries and marketing of new products were expanded.

 

The following year, the company expanded to Russia and the new subsidiary was based in Moscow. In the coming years, there was a significant investment in land and buildings in Hořovice, which allowed Cymedica to develop in the future. At the same time, the Slovak headquarters in Zvolen were rebuilt comprehensively – the warehouse and office facilities were modernized.

 

After the completion of the renovation of the villa in Hořovice, Cymedica has finally had a dignified seat corresponding to its development and needs. A significant expansion and completion of warehouse and production facilities took place as well, with a central warehouse and logistics for all branches in Hořovice.
The company focused on providing quality advice to veterinary professionals, organized professional seminars and workshops, to which it invited foreign lecturers. We put a lot of effort into marketing and web presentations in all countries, focusing on building a quality ordering portal for end users and improving logistics to serve them.

 

Gradually, Cymedica began to look for further business opportunities in existing markets and launched its own wholesale distribution, which would be complemented by a portfolio of its own and exclusively sold products.

 

Between 2016 and 18, Cymedica opened new branches in Georgia and Kazakhstan, ceased to operate in Hungary, and expanded its own line of veterinary medical cosmetics and disinfections. The latest open company branch is in Bulgaria.

 

Cymedica is currently a strong and stable company operating in Central and Eastern Europe, employing approximately 200 people.
