History

The company was established in 1927 as a family owned firm importing and distributing pharmaceutical products in Lebanon and the Middle East.
In 1997, it has been restructured in a privately owned stock company whereby its shares were allocated to the parent holding Holmed, top managing directors and other external shareholders.
Banking on a proven success in the pharmaceuticals industry, backed by the Information Technology experience gained from its sister companies and supported by its financially strong holding parent, ABELA FRERES was able to establish a state of the art Pharmaceutical Distribution Network.

Offices

ABELA FRERES, part of HOLCOM, relocated its offices to Holcom’s new state-of-the-art eco-friendly building which is conceived to save energy and structured to provide the best work conditions. 

These days, work is done in open spaces, on shared desks, in meeting rooms of all sizes, in study room-areas, in coffee points, in informal meeting rooms, etc... 

Hence, the new office layout was the answer to the current and future ways of working; "work" being done on a "where and when is necessary" basis and in spaces utilized effectively, designed based on function and task and that encourage communication between all the levels of staff.

The new ABELA FRERES offices also have client specific areas. These areas contain waiting zones as well as dedicated meeting rooms to build effective collaborations between the company and its clients-visitors.
