GAP operates in three principal areas:

1. Manufacturing of soft capsules in its state-of-the-art equipped facilities.

2. Development, manufacturing and distribution of generic and original pharmaceuticals in the Greek and international markets.

3. Development, manufacturing and distribution of food supplements under the brand name EVIOL.


GAP remains the leading manufacturer of soft capsules in Greece and one of the few in Europe in the position to offer flexible and cost effective services in accordance with the EU GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) requirements.


GAP is one of the most dynamic and extrovert Greek pharmaceutical manufacturers. The company was founded in 1949 by the brothers Georgios and Athanasios Papathanasiou, who continued the long family tradition of pharmacists, tracing back to their roots in Smyrna.

Armed with a vision and persistence, the Papathanasiou brothers laid the foundations for GAP, which has succeeded in becoming one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in Greece today.

From the first day of its operation until today, GAP retains its unwavering commitment to a basic code of principles, emphasizing quality, safety, efficacy and innovation of its products.

Another cornerstone value for the company is its respect towards its employees and managers. GAP is and will remain a family, united by a common value system.
