The new seat includes office space as well as warehouse function. Only 18% of the one hectare area will be covered by the buildings. A water pond dedicated for land irrigation will be also placed on the plot. Within the solar photovoltaics system 80% of the energy consumption will be covered by the building itself. This will be topped by the low CO2 emission. The new seat of Komtur Polska will reflect the company’s innovative strategy, combining effectiveness, sustained development as well as environmental protection.
The location of the new building (close to the Expressway S2 and Frederic Chopin Airport) should enable even higher supply chain efficiency. The Komutr’s relocation to the new office is scheduled for autumn 2017.
Wishing all our customers and contractors warm and peaceful Happy Easter, filled with serenity and kindness as well as lots of joy and satisfaction in professional and private life.

Komtur Polska’s 10th Anniversary!!!
We have been here for you for ten years already!
Komtur Polska as a specialised pharmaceutical company was registered in Poland in 2004. Our beginnings meant an office that had only one room and two employees. Shortly after that, we opened a new office at Puławska, Warsaw, that was quickly enlarged to a warehouse area. In September 2005 we received the permission to run a pharmaceutical warehouse and we sold our first box of medicine. In 2015 we opened a new warehouse area, dedicated to products for special nutritional purposes. We are currently working on raising one of the most innovative and most ecological buildings in Poland - our new head office.
Within those ten years, we have cooperated with the biggest drug producers in the world: Celgene, Actelion Pharmaceuticals, BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, Orphan Europe, Swedish Orphan Biovitrum, Shire HGT, Medac, Lipomed, Riemser Arzneimittel, Roche, MSD , Novartis, Pfizer, Alexion, Vertex, PTC Therapeutics, Johnson & Johnson, among others.
We would like to thank all our clients and partners for those wonderful 10 years.
If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be so successful every day!
