This family run company has a history in healthcare within Ireland stretching back over 80 years, crossing 3 family generations! The roots of the Company began when Jack Freyne established Freyne’s Pharmacy in Clondalkin with vision to supply healthcare professionals and patients with high quality, effective and innovative products. Through the years a number of subsequent companies developed, including Pharma Global Ltd, but this ethos remained constant.
Garett Freyne continued the legacy set by his father and expanded the business into new areas such as Ophthalmics. Now his sons, Tom and John, bring a new passion and energy to Scope Group, a pharmaceutical company, with an ever expanding portfolio of innovative Healthcare and Ophthalmology products in the Irish and UK markets.
Our philosophy is based on 4 principles:
- Providing premium & innovative products to all HCP’s who can in turn enhance their patient’s lives.
- Strong customer service to both customers and patients. (1-hour guarantee-call back)
- Maintaining and building long term relationships with all Health Care Professional’s that are key to our success
- Providing a full scale service in an ethical and high professional standard to enhance our reputation
Scope Group has come from small beginnings with a team of 6 people in an upstairs office in Clondalkin in 2009 to almost 90 people working with our customers across the UK and Ireland in 2016. We have ambitious growth plans for the next 3 years and we are making huge investments in New Product Development, Technology, Process Improvement and Systems in order to build a platform for this growth.
