Company Information

Abbott Laboratories, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, was founded in 1888 by a physician named Dr Wallace Calvin. His purpose was to improve people's well-being and help them reach their full potential at different stages of their lives. Founded as a drug formulation company, today, Abbott Laboratories is a worldwide leader in healthcare, medical devices, nutritional products, and pharmaceutical drugs. Even though it reached the shores of India a century ago, it is still regarded as one of the largest healthcare product companies. With a focus on cardiovascular, diagnostic, diabetes, and neuromodulation products, some of its popular brands include Pedialyte, Glucerna, Similac, Ensure, and iStat. Abbott opened its first international office in London in 1907, and currently operates in over 160 countries. Its growth is also a result of strategic acquisitions. Abbott’s recent acquisitions include Kalo Pharma International in 2014, which doubled its brand generic drug portfolio. It acquired Tendyne in 2015 and along with it the company’s minimally invasive mitral valve replacement therapies. Another gem in the crown is the acquisition of Alere in 2016, which gave Abbott access to the largest mail-order diabetic supplier, Arriva Medical. Along with strategic acquisitions, the company is dedicated to gaining a strong competitive advantage.
