Company description

In June 2000, the US parent company, Pfizer Inc, merged with pharmaceutical company Warner Lambert to create a ‘new’ Pfizer. In the UK, this made Pfizer Ltd a market leader in Consumer Healthcare.

In April 2001, Pfizer Ltd received its sixth Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The award was made for innovation in the discovery and development of Viagra (sildenafil), used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The medicine, discovered at Pfizer’s Sanwich laboratories, was also awarded ‘Millennium Status’ by the UK Design Council, recognising it as one of the country’s most innovative products.

In 2002, Pfizer’s sales and marketing functions were relocated to new offices at Walton Oaks in Surrey. The innovative buildings, which won a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for its design, became the headquasrters for Pfizer’s UK operating business.

During April 2003, Pfizer and Pharmacia combined operations, bringing together two of the world’s fastest-growing and most innovative companies. This made Pfizer Ltd the largest pharmaceutical company in the UK and the number one supplier of medicines to the NHS.
