The company was established in 1945 by Mr. León Borzutzky Fridman. The business began in the retail sector, with 2 small pharmacies, and few years later won the distribution in South America (except Brazil) for Johnson & Johnson, Kimberly Clark, Dr. Scholl, among others.
Then, seeking for efficiencies and growth, the company developed commercial relations with China, being the first chilean company doing business with the Asian giant.
By the beginning of the 21st century, LBF consolidated itself as a premium distributor of the health sector and made an important leap towards professionalization, building a new headquarter which includes distribution center and world-class offices, located in Enea Industrial Park, in Santiago – Chile.
Currently, LBF is developing with success its own brands Smartmed® and CathSafe®, and has customer service coverage throughout the complete national territory, focusing on Advanced Wound Management, Surgical Solutions for OR, PPE, Fluids and Biological Waste Management, and in general, cost-effectiveness disposables in order to better serve the health professionals and improve patient’s quality of life.
