An Italian success

Kropf family in 1948
Eurospital’s journey has always been full of challenges and success in the pharmaceutical and diagnostic market, yesterday as well as today.

Eurospital was established in Trieste in 1948 and since then it has maintained its original imprint, thanks to the management continuity of the Kropf family, who has been running the company for three generations.

Today, 75 years later, we at Eurospital keep looking at the future, searching for “innovation for living better”, in line with the company’s philosophy.
