Our company


Symbion is a national wholesaler of healthcare services and products with over 4000 retail pharmacy customers and 1300 hospital customers across Australia.

Its beginnings can be traced back 175 years, to when Francis Hardy Faulding opened his first pharmacy in Adelaide in 1845. Since this time, Symbion has grown to become an integral part of the Australian healthcare system.

The company has 11 warehouses located around Australia which coordinate daily deliveries and houses over 16,500 product lines from more than 550 manufacturing partners.

Dedicated to the long-term success of Australian pharmacy, Symbion also offers retail support to major groups and brands, and to independent pharmacies through the Pharmacy Choice program. It further supports community pharmacies through its healthSAVE banner – a cost effective solution for those looking for help to drive their retail business.

As a market-leading business, Symbion is committed to investing in the world’s best technologies, to increase efficiency for its customers and respond to the future demands of Australia’s healthcare landscape.

Its growth and success are guided by four core values:

  • Our people are our advantage
  • We value fresh thinking and new ideas
  • Through partnerships with our customers we deliver great outcomes
  • Strong supplier relationships are central to our success.

Symbion is a signatory to the Australian Government’s Community Service Obligation.

Symbion’s operations are proudly backed by EBOS Group – the largest human and animal healthcare company in Australasia.
