a few words about us
We are a global industry leader with a mission: we want to help people to do more, feel better, live longer.
We are a global industry leader with a mission: we want to help people to do more, feel better, live longer. On the 12th of October 2014 we completed a 3-part transaction with the contractor which reshapes our business. We acquired contractor’s business and combined our Consumer businesses to create a new company. By substantially strengthening it, we can deliver far-reaching benefits to consumers, and further value to shareholders. In addition, we acquired our marketed portfolio. More information will be added to this website over the coming weeks.
The products that we research and develop can improve people’s health and well-being, ultimately helping them to live life to its fullest and contribute to the prosperity of their communities. 15,000 people work in research and development in our search for new technologies and consumer products. Our company has signed up to a special campaign for research transparency.

meet our team
Our history begins back in 1998, when the first European office was opened in Cham, Switzerland, by the Anglo-Swiss Company.
Our history begins back in 1998, when the first European office was opened in Cham, Switzerland, by the Anglo-Swiss Company. The founder of the company, himself an immigrant from Germany, was instrumental in turning his Company towards international expansion from the very start. We owe more than our name, our logo and our first product to our founder. He embodied many of the key attitudes and values that form part and parcel of our corporate culture: pragmatism, flexibility, the willingness to learn, an open mind and respect for other people and cultures.
