About us

With 47,700 employees in 103 countries, Boehringer Ingelheim is one of the world's top 20 pharmaceutical companies. Since its foundation in 1885, the family-owned company has been pursuing an ambitious goal: to research and develop innovative pharmaceuticals that improve the health and quality of life of humans and animals alike.

Our working culture

Our corporate culture is rooted in our sense of responsibility. We strive to be caring, considerate and open in everything we do. We are involved in social development projects worldwide, e.g. our “Making More Health” initiative; and we promote a healthy work-life balance for all our employees. In addition, the fact we reinvest more than 20% of our revenues into R&D to develop our medications organically sets us apart from other pharmaceutical companies.
