We are the Original

Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, is a leading science and technology company for innovative and top-quality high-tech products in healthcare, life science and performance materials. Founded in 1668 in Darmstadt, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, is the world's oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company. The success of the export business to the United States led in 1887 to the establishment of an office in New York, which gave rise to our subsidiary Merck & Co. four years later. Owing to World War I, Merck & Co. was expropriated in 1917. The two companies have been separate ever since.
