Operations

AddLife focuses on selected niche segments with offerings aimed primarily at the healthcare sector – from research to medical care, where AddLife is a leading independent distributor to the European Life Science market.

The 46 operating subsidiaries have strong brands in the product portfolio and AddLife is currently present in over 25 countries, mainly in the Nordic countries, Central and Eastern Europe. Customers are primarily hospitals and laboratories, as well as the pharmaceutical and food industries.

Demand in the Life Science market continues to trend positively and is expected to remain high in health services. Growth depends on the demographic trend with a growing and aging population, as well as technological developments that facilitate new treatment methods and various digital solutions.
