“Alpha Medical is a very successful company based on good foundations,” Eduard Maták, the Penta partner responsible for health projects, said as quoted by SITA. “We have created from a local player with sales of €2 million an international group with sales of €65 million. After six years Alpha Medical is a ripe investment in our portfolio.”
