In 1994 Antonio Velasco formed the base of the Grupo Vegal from a pharmaceutical laboratory dedicated to the development of new medicines, especially generics. He started up the international expansion, with the know-how of previous professional experiences, expanding its scope to all the services and activities that are demanded in the health sector

These initial objectives have been extended over time with the aid of highly qualified staff that has come to implement a great capacity to work in different environments, along with the proven contribution of effort, enthusiasm and versatility.
