CEO Message

This year we celebrate 94 years since KMP earned the first license to trade para-pharmaceuticals in the Syrian Ministry of Health Index. We remain one of the leaders in pharmaceutical manufacturing in the local region. Our Branded business – a truly unique asset – has grown through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions that complete our mark in the region, and enabled us to consolidate in key markets. We currently employ many sales and marketing professionals in both Syria and abroad.

In conclusion, I would like to pay tribute to my father, Abd El Rahman Kanawati, who passed away in May 1965. The entire KMP family of course, misses him, yet his legacy lives on in virtually everything we do at KMP. Every day, we are fulfilling his commitment to making high-quality medicines accessible and affordable for patients across the region. We are emulating his entrepreneurial spirit as we look for new technologies to invest in and new capabilities to develop. We are following his example as we look to enter new markets and take on new challenges. We are convinced in the need for continuing education and training as we strive to expand our knowledge and learn new skills. Most importantly, we are working together as a team to build on his success. We remain very ambitious for KMP and we are confident in our ability to drive continued growth in the years to come.
