Vibrant Science and Technology

Our pursuit is progress for people everywhere. That’s why we take a closer look at things, ask questions and think ahead.

We’ve been around for more than 350 years, yet our majority owners are still the descendants of Friedrich Jacob Merck, the man who founded our company in Darmstadt, Germany in 1668.

Since then, we have become a truly global company, more than 55,000 employees in 66 countries working on breakthrough solutions and technologies. In 2019, we invested a total of € 2.3 billion in research and development.

We are Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. The only exceptions are the United States and Canada. Here we operate as EMD Serono in the Biopharma business, as MilliporeSigma in the Life Science business, and as EMD Performance Materials in the materials business. 

From prescription medicines to treat conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and infertility to over-the-counter products developed to help protect every member of your family: our goal is to make a difference to millions of people around the world.
