Surgipharm's Advantage

Our Advantage

Today, we continue to build on the expertise we've gained over our unique history by widening our product portfolio and serving an ever diverse customer base.

However, we are confident in our belief that there are no other distributors in Uganda who can compete with our level of service, quality of products, affordable prices and range of capabilities. Our strengths are what set us apart from our competitors.

Quality Assurance

ISO Certification

In 2005 Surgipharm became the first private pharmaceutical company in East Africa to earn ISO 9001:2000 certification. Certification had the immediate impact of streamlining procedures within the company, which over the years has led to better service for our customers through improved controls in company operations. Ever since our initial certification, Surgipharm has been recertified every year. In 2010 Surgipharm was awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification, an update from ISO 9001:2000.

Relationships really do matter, especially when it comes to providing health care solutions. Building lasting relationships with our customers is at the core foundation of our business. We understand that it is important for our customers to trust us and that only through quality service and the fulfilment of our promises can we earn that trust.

For us, it is not about simply making the sale, but taking every necessary step to make certain that each order's requirements are met and that each customer is fully satisfied. As a means to achieving this we provide all of our customers with quick and easy access to customer service representatives throughout the sales process. We understand and appreciate that every customer has different needs and therefore treat each as an individual.
