Invest Albury Wodonga: Business Feature: Albury Wodonga to the world
Six years ago, recognising the insurmountable hurdles, intense competition and sky high overheads associated with starting a business in Brisbane, or any other capital city, Ben Eshelby sought the chance to start a business in a regional city.
Disenchanted with the traditional community pharmacy business model, Ben knew he wanted to create a business that provided tailored solutions for its customers.
"More and more frequently, people are requesting and requiring medicines that are not commercially made,” Ben said.
“We make personalised pharmaceutical and skincare solutions for those who cannot find what they need off-the-shelf.”
Border Compounding Pharmacy started in Lavington in 2013, before relocating to the Albury CBD at the end of 2017.
Border Compounding Pharmacy (also known as BCP) provides quality customised pharmaceutical and cosmetic solutions to suit every individual. Their friendly staff have a passion for health care and for creating innovative solutions to help with every customer’s requirements.
BCP is constantly researching and developing new ideas for medicines, cosmetics, and complementary health solutions. Two of their staff are pharmacists who are also qualified cosmetic scientists (members of both the Australian Society of Cosmetic Chemists and the Australian College of Pharmacy), one is a research pharmacist with numerous published research papers, several are fully trained compounding technicians, and one is a beauty therapist specialising in skin consultancy.
