Our company


We’re connecting communities to care.

Symbion is a national wholesaler of healthcare services and products with over 3,850 retail pharmacy customers and 1,800 hospital customers across Australia.

Its beginnings can be traced back 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 9 warehouses located around Australia which coordinate daily deliveries and houses over 17,000 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.

Our shared values guide us and the decisions we make every day.

We seek to:

  • Be customer-driven;
  • Grow stronger together;
  • Be brave and innovate;
  • Do it with care; and
  • Strive for excellence.

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