About Us

Founded in 1990 by Murat & Cathryn Ataç Med Supplies Ltd. is a specialised family owned pharmaceutical wholesaler based in the UK with a regional office in Istanbul, Turkey.

Med Supplies Ltd pioneered the supply of unlicensed medication on a Named Patient Basis in Turkey.  We specialise in the supply and distribution of orphan products on a Named Patient Supply basis to patients in Turkey and Northern Cyprus and offer specialised service options for rare disease drug developers.

Having worked extensively with American, French, British and German partners both past and present we strive to deliver urgent products to assist the care of patients, some desperately ill, such that they have a chance to fulfil their potentials.

That we are one of the oldest companies to operate in this market is down to the focus we have on delivering excellence both to our partners, to the doctors, the authorities and to the patients.

Bringing the experience of older generations with the enthusiasm of our younger employees together to continue to deliver the service that growth orientated pharmaceutical companies demand.

We are current and active members of the British Chamber of Commerce Turkey and Transparency International.

A Message From Our Founder

After moving to the UK in the 1970s, I retained a strong connection with my homeland, Turkey. Co-existing between these two geographical and cultural sites facilitated an understanding of the discrepancies in the field of medical opportunities that existed between Turkey and Europe. From a recognition of this untapped market and desire to break down geographical barriers to improve health outcomes, Med Supplies Limited was founded.

Whilst much has changed in the decades that have followed, Med Supplies Ltd’s core value has remained constant: to ensure no patient suffers due to absent medication. Med Supplies Ltd is no longer alone within the Turkish market but our cornerstones of integrity and reliability, have ensured the company’s continued existence. My greatest accomplishment rests with Med Supplies Ltd being recognised across the country and within leading health organisations as a dependable, effective trade link to Europe.

I believe healthcare in Turkey has an exciting and dynamic future ahead. Continuing on from thirty years of excellent service, I look forward to Med Supplies further cementing its reputation, in addition to seeking out innovative avenues in our quest to break down the barriers to universal health opportunities.
