20 Years

Alloga UK is extremely proud to announce that in October 2016 the business will be celebrating 20 years of providing healthcare supply chain services in the UK. This journey began with one anchor client and a team of five based within a small Portakabin and today Alloga now serves over 125 clients and employs over 800 staff across its five, soon to be six, warehouses.

Over the last 20 years the company has seen substantial growth demonstrating its success as a supply chain services provider. Since establishing its first warehouse, Amber Park One, Alloga's range of product types and services has significantly expanded along with its client base which still includes the original anchor client BMS.

The first company name, UDG (UniDrug Distribution Group), was registered in March 1996 as a joint venture between UniChem plc and United Drug plc. Trading activity then commenced in October 1996 from within a shared unit with UniChem and soon after UDG opened the Amber Park One site with anchor client BMS in May 1997. In March 2015 the business was then rebranded from UDG to Alloga UK.
