French term or phrase: établissement pharmaceutique exploitant
I can't seem to find an 'official' translation for this anywhere.

Here's the article in full:

"ARTICLE 3 - OBJET

La société a pour objet, en France et à l'étranger :
- les activités d'ingénierie et d'études techniques spécialisées dans tous procédés techniques, notamment pour les industries pharmaceutiques, cosmétiques, agro-alimentaires et annexes,
- les activités de développement et coordination pour son compte ou le compte de tiers dans les domaines industriels précités,
- l'activité d'établissement pharmaceutique exploitant,
- la prise, l'acquisition, l'exploitation, la cession de tous procédés techniques, savoir-faire et brevet concernant les industries précitées,
- et, d'une manière générale, toutes opérations commerciales, financières, mobilières et immobilières pouvant se rattacher directement ou indirectement aux objets ci-dessus et à tous objets similaires ou connexes pouvant en favoriser l'extension et le développement."

Does anyone know if an 'official' translation exists or, failing that, can anyone provide a sensible suggested translation? Many thanks.

Pharmaceutical distribution company
Explanation:
I checked a few French official forms and documents: this expression seems to a recent made-up expression to describe "pharmaceutical distributors" as opposed to "manufacturers".

It seems to apply indiscriminately to the pharmacist around the corner and large pharmaceutical distributors. Also, they always mention a link to the position of "pharmacien", which also seems to confirm the idea of "distribution". The kudoz page is also pointing towrads this.

Not a complete guess, I hope it helps

agree  Sylvia Smith: yes, my understanding as well - one of their goals is to establish and operate a drug/pharmaceutical distribution business
