Our history, our mission and our values tell the story of who we are as a company. We began as a pharmaceutical distributor, providing products to customers in smaller communities.
Today we’re one of the world’s leading generics and specialty pharmaceutical companies, with sales in approximately 140 countries and territories. And our dedication to providing access to medicine continues to grow after more than 50 years.
