Founded in 1995 by Tom and Mary Murphy, Pamex Ltd., is one of Ireland's leading healthcare distributors. Headquartered in Castlebar, Co Mayo, Pamex Ltd. specialises in the sales, distribution and promotion of niche prescription pharmaceuticals and OTC healthcare products in ophthalmology, diagnostics, dental, oral care, skin care and male grooming sectors. Pamex Ltd. has built an outstanding reputation for its portfolio of ‘best-in-class' brands including Carmex, Kin Dental Care, BioXtra and Total Shaving Solution.

Despite the economic downturn, Tom Murphy is one of those eternally optimistic business individuals. Says Murphy, "if we had an Olympic games for negativity, no other country on earth need apply, because Ireland would win all the medals and awards"! While genuinely conscious that some people are struggling greatly because of the mis-management of our country including the banking sector, we have to be positive and try and help each other and plough on. Without a doubt there are opportunities in a recession and Murphy should know, because he founded Pamex after his own position was made redundant in 1995. And despite sending out over 60 job applications, he only got one single acknowledgement.

He is scathing of employers who receive job applications and don't bother to reply. He considers it the height of discourtesy and extremely bad business practice.

With the launch of PROSTA-Check, the new PSA test device, he is confident that it will increase awareness about men taking their personal health more seriously, because an elevated PSA level can be a sign that there is something seriously wrong that needs to be checked out by a medical professional. If it catches just one individual who then goes to have successful treatment, then it will be a success for all concerned according to Murphy.

Currently the Pamex management team is eyeing up the U.K. market to launch their Dental Products range there next month, and according to General Manager Diarmuid Gavin,f the market there is fifteen times the size of Ireland and "we aim to get a slice of it". With exceptional products and a professional sales team, it looks like Pamex is on the right track and is getting ready for the economic upturn.
