The Altmans Story

Altmans Team

Altmans is an Australian owned sales and pharmacy distribution business, established in 1993 by Maurie Altman, who recognised the specific selling requirements of the health and beauty industry, including cosmetic, toiletry, fragrance & gifts.

Today Altmans is owned and operated by Nicole and Rod Holmes, Maurie’s daughter and son in law. Nicole has worked in the cosmetic industry for 20 years both in Australia and the UK, in sales and marketing roles. Rod Holmes has worked in the IT industry for over 20 years and supports Altmans brands and pharmacy customers with specialised IT, accounting and logistics skills.

“Helping you look good” is the Altmans motto. Our expert sales and brand building skills will support your advertising and marketing plans and help your brand look good in pharmacy. Our quick pharmacy distribution services ensure fully stocked shelves, thus helping our pharmacies look good. In turn, the brands we sell help Australian consumers look good when they wear and use them.
