PD breaking news – CHS signs exclusive Department of Defence agreement

Sigma offshoot wins five year Commonwealth supply contract. 

Sigma Healthcare has just announced that its subsidiary Central Healthcare Services (CHS) will begin exclusively supplying pharmaceuticals to the Commonwealth Department of Defence (DoD) this month, after winning a five year contract.

The initial phase of the deal sets the base for CHS to provide pharmaceutical supplies to nominated distribution points across the country, with the option for the Department to extend the scope of the agreement.

Sigma executive general manager of business development and strategy, Jeff Sells, said the company was excited to begin the new long-term partnership with the department. “Over the past two years CHS has expanded its distribution network to have a national footprint. This investment has given us a fantastic platform to achieve growth through extended service agreements such as this one,” he said.

CHS has facilities in Victoria, NSW and Queensland along with a new distribution centre in Western Australia, giving it a “national footprint that will support DoD, community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy and our third party logistics customers,” Sells said.

“This is another great step in implementing our business strategy to diversify our earnings away from PBS and move to a more holistic healthcare model,” he added.
