Performance We strive for continuous improvement in our performance, measuring results carefully, and ensuring that integrity and respect for people are never compromised.
Our company’s history is built on innovation and adventure, of risks taken and bold decisions made. It is the story of dedicated individuals working together in building a great company with a noble purpose – helping people all around the world live longer, healthier lives. It is the story of a small chemical firm from a humble beginning in Brooklyn, New York which went on to become one of the world’s premier pharmaceutical enterprises.
Pfizer has come a long way since its establishment in 1849 by Charles Pfizer and Charles Erhart. What started out as a family firm with two employees and a simple product has become a global enterprise with 130,000 employees over six continents.
