About us

GAP is one of the most dynamic and aspiring Greek pharmaceutical manufacturers. The company was founded in 1949 by the brothers Georgios and Athanasios Papathanasiou, who continued the long family tradition of pharmacists, with roots from Smyrna.

Armed with a vision and persistence, the Papathanasiou brothers laid the foundations for GAP, which manages to be one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in Greece today.

From the first day of its operation until today, GAP remains undoubtedly committed to a basic code of principles, emphasizing quality, safety, efficacy and innovation of its products.

Another cornerstone value for the company is its respect towards its employees and managers. GAP is and will remain a family, united by a common value system.

GAP operates in 3 principal areas:

  • Production and distribution of generic and innovative products in the Greek and international markets.
  • Development and distribution of EVIOL products (vitamins, food supplements, cosmetics).
  • Contract manufacturing of soft capsules in its state-of-the-art equipped facilities.

Today, GAP ranks amongst the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in Greece. It is a leader in the Greek generic market, while it also represents original products of International companies, such as Vifor Pharma, Ferrer, Henkel and others.

At the same time, led by the Eviol brand name (Vitamin E), its entire range of cosmetics and dietary supplements hold a prominent position in pharmacies and consumers. In addition, the soft capsules department is pioneer in Greece and enjoys the confidence of major foreign firms that manufacture their products in our company.
