Biogen Idec - A Biotechnology Pioneer
Biogen Idec was founded in 1978 as one of the world’s first biotechnology companies. Today, we are a global leader in the discovery, development, manufacturing and commercialization of innovative therapies that address serious, unmet medical needs. People in more than 90 countries benefit from our products—and we are always working to make an even bigger impact on the world.
To our patients, we are the trusted source of vital therapies for multiple sclerosis, such as AVONEX® and TYSABRI®. We also discovered and co-market RITUXAN®, the world’s most prescribed treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Medications such as these along with the many different support programs we offer help our patients deal with the rigors of living with serious illness.
To our employees, we are an exciting and invigorating place to work, an ambitious company where courageous innovation is encouraged and expected—not just of scientists, but of every employee. Our manufacturing people take pride in our leadership in producing biologics, with more than 100,000 liters of capacity spread across three facilities. Our customer service representatives handle more than 800,000 calls per year, offering straightforward information, assistance and patient services. Across the company—in marketing, sales, quality control and human resources—people are empowered to challenge conventional wisdom and propose better ways of doing things.
As a Fortune 500 company, we have plans for substantial future growth. This year and beyond, we intend to:
- Pursue first-in-class and best-in-class products through a combination of internal research and development and strategic partnerships.
- Offer our products through relatively small yet highly specialized sales forces.
- Expand our global footprint, including our presence in developing economies such as China and India, which offer market opportunities and talent pools to support ongoing innovation.
At Biogen Idec, we are proud of our more than 30 years of contributions to the biotechnology industry, and we look forward to continuing to shape the future of an industry that transforms scientific discovery into advances in patient care.
