Maximed was established in 1996 when four independent Pharmacies in Standerton amalgamated to provide consumers the benefit of highly competitive prices, extensive specialised product ranges and extended shopping hours.
The then three Directors, Ferdie Weyers, Peter Daniel and Jeremy Seigel opened two branches in Standerton with the goal of providing accessible and affordable health care of the highest professional standard to the greater Standerton area.
In 2010, Ferdie Weyers left South Africa for Canada to join the Shoppers Drug Mart Group and run his own Pharmacy in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
He returned in 2011 and spent a year at CJ Williams Pharmaceuticals in Delmas, Mpumalanga. During this time he entered into negotiations to purchase Maximed Pharmacies from his ex-partners and finally took over the helm as sole director in June 2013.
