Get in Touch

Generic pharmaceutical products are a vital part of business for the independent pharmacy. Confronted with thinning margins, rising drug prices and added pressure from pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), independent pharmacies must rely on the strong profits from the sale of generic pharmaceutical products to remain viable.

Of course, profiting from the sale of generic pharmaceutical products requires access to competitively priced products from a generic drugs wholesaler. But rather than working with a generic prescription distributor who focuses on large chain pharmacies, more small pharmacies today are purchasing generic pharmaceutical products from a supplier like H. D. Smith who focuses on business solutions and distribution for community pharmacies.
By partnering with wholesale pharmacy suppliers, like H. D. Smith, community pharmacies not only have access to competitively priced generics, they know they are working with a supplier who has their best interest in mind.

H. D. Smith: a leading supplier of generic pharmaceutical products.

H. D. Smith is one of the largest independent focused pharmaceutical wholesale distributors in the country. Dedicated since 1954 to serving the needs of community pharmacies, we offer a comprehensive selection of medicines, specialty drug distribution, consumer products, home healthcare products and pharmacies supplies, along with one of the most robust portfolios of generic pharmaceutical products in the industry.
Our portfolio, PharmaGen, is supported by contracts and partnerships with leading generic manufacturers. Our team also monitors the generic market daily to ensure that we are delivering the best possible generic drug availability, coverage, quality and value to our independent pharmacy customers.
