We are on the road to tomorrow

We are a leading pharmaceutical, chemical and life science company with four strong divisions: Merck Serono, Consumer Health Care, Merck Millipore and Performance Materials.

We have a clear focus on research and development as well as profitable, high-margin specialties. With over 40,000 employees in 67 countries, we are committed to living social, economic and ecological responsibility – toward people, toward our partners in the market and toward our shareholders.

Four examples show how we are succeeding globally with the values that unite us and with our strategy entitled "Sustain. Change. Grow."

"I have experienced myself what people can do [ … ] my ambition was aroused and thus I resolved [ … ] that I had to be the best [ … ]. This experience bore me abundant fruits later by teaching me that people [ … ] can achieve a great deal if they have the determination to do so."
Emanuel Merck (1794 – 1855)
