Company description

Boehringer Ingelheim is a family owned company whose distinctly independent structure means that we are not constrained by the short-term needs of individual shareholders and can focus on the future with long-term strategies of vision and leadership. Boehringer Ingelheim was founded in 1885 by Albert Boehringer and remains a familyowned company. Today we are the fastest growing company amongst the world’s 15 leading pharmaceutical companies.

Annual sales are €12.7 billion worldwide (2009) and 21% of the net sales from its Prescription Medicine business is invested into research and development. The company now employ more than 41,500 people and is committed to remaining family-owned. Albert’s great grandson, Christian Boehringer, is the Chair of the Shareholders’ Committee which manages 142 affiliated companies in 50 countries around the globe. Our headquarters remain in Ingelheim, near Frankfurt in Germany.

Boehringer Ingelheim’s vision, ‘Value through Innovation’, mirrors the founder’s own belief in the importance of innovative thinking and that, as well as being financially profitable, products should be pioneering and of genuine benefit to patients. This independent status frees the company from stock market expectations, and allows for long-term strategies, rather than short-term priorities.

In the United Kingdom, Boehringer Ingelheim was established in 1962 and is one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical companies in the UK, with total sales of £388 million in 2009 (independent audit). The business focuses on clinical research, data management, sales and marketing.
