Polypharma et Centrimex, une question de flexibilité

Its target customers are public and private hospitals requiring expertise in the biomedical field. The products sold by the company are available in Cameroon, Chad, Guinea, the Central African Republic, the Congo and Gabon. The company has more than 100 employees who together cover the whole of Cameroon with four regional agencies in Douala, Bafoussam, Ngaoundéré and Yaoundé. The company also has a sales outlet in Bamenda and two large storage facilities with a surface area of 4000 M².

Among other things, Polypharma’s Transit Manager Jean Kouam handles the importation operations performed by Centrimex. In his view, the relationship between the two companies is a solid one, as he explains: « At Centrimex we are seen as more than just a number and the company's chairman Philippe Haddad drops in to see us when he visits Douala, as he shares our values. Additionally, the Polypharma account is attentively managed on an ongoing basis by the COLIMEX / CENTRIMEX sales staff ».

Over and above this excellent relationship between the two companies, Jean Kouam is also keen to stress the high quality of the work performed by Centrimex with all of its suppliers worldwide: « We are kept up-to-date with the state of progress of our orders currently being prepared at our shippers. The Centrimex teams are very responsive and this is important for our forecasting ».

« We also find this flexibility and responsiveness in our business dealings with Centrimex, which is why we have no hesitation in saying that flexibility is one of Centrimex’s strong points » concludes Jean Kouam.
