Our history goes back almost 90 years ago when Herbert Donovan Hopwood decided to pursue his
dream of building his own distribution company HD Hopwood & Company Limited. In September 2001,
Massy Group one of the largest conglomerates in the Caribbean with total sales in excess of US$400M,
then named Neal & Massy Holdings Limited, acquired 100% ownership of HD Hopwood. The acquisition lead
to the eventual and strategic rebranding of the company to Massy Distribution (Jamaica) Limited.
Today, Massy Distribution (Jamaica) Limited an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, is one of the largest and leading distributors and importers of pharmaceutical and consumer products in Jamaica, as well as a licensed manufacturer of the Ammens line of medicated powders.
