Our history

Sartoretto Verna pharmacies since 1965

We are an Italian company that is dedicated exclusively to the study of tools and methods for making pharmacists stronger and more recognized since 1965, all around the world.
Sartoretto Verna is the name of the family that for three generations has been running the company with over 100 employees.
Today we are the only company in the industry with pharmacies in 28 countries spanning 4 continents. Our forward thinking has often created trends in the pharmacy design field. We boast concrete and reliable experience, certified over the years by substantial increases in sales, in parallel with our customers’.


FIRST in the world, here’s why


We were the first company in Italy to introduce pharmacy furniture that permitted the storage of a large volume of products per square meter and the first to introduce Schiller mobile cabinets followed by cabinets with drawers (R+R)

It is with the engineer Dr. Giovanni Sartoretto Verna (photo), that the Sartoretto Verna pharmacy story begins.

In 1965 Dr. Sartoretto Verna who was General Manager South America of Olivetti at the time, came up with the idea of importing and selling the pharmacy cabinets with drawers that are now commonplace. Escalating to importing a range of pharmacy furniture took no time at all.




We were the first to introduce the concept of layout in the pharmacy in Italy (Giuliani furniture), through modular metal systems (Itafarma).

2015 – ®Ral System 7, moduled modular system


We were the first to introduce a modular ABS system into the pharmacy. ®Ral 7 has been designed with the aim to simplify the building and installation process. ®Ral 7 is an Italian product, relatively new yet known world-wide, winner of the Cosmofarma prize for innovation and research and entirely recyclable.

We were the first to integrate a molded shelf with LED lighting for the best display of the products featuring a double-sided display for communicating category and price.


®Ral 8 is the latest product in the Sartoretto Verna range. The designers wanted to combine extreme versatility with the best way to expose the products to the customer.
