"As one of the oldest pharmaceutical companies in the world, we take pride in our heritage with a keen eye for the future defined by an unwavering commitment for patient cause."

Elcin Barker Ergun

High quality therapeutics and diagnostics solutions for patients, ethics as our underlying principle, dedication to innovation and advancement, strong people centricity and environmental sustainability. These five pillars form the foundation of the Menarini Group, an Italian pharmaceutical company with more than 135 years of history. Founded in 1886 in Naples under the name of Farmacia Internazionale, in 1915 Menarini moved to Florence where the Group’s headquarters are still located today.

The Menarini Group is present in 140 countries around the world. Its companies span from Europe to Asia, to Africa and the Middle East, to Central America and to the United States where with the acquisition of Stemline Therapeutics, a NASDAQ-listed biopharmaceutical company, the company marked its entry into the US oncology market.

Thanks to the valuable contribution of over 17,000 employees, every year more than 500 million packs of drugs are produced at the Group's 18 manufacturing sites including a biotech plant for the manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies that also serves external clients. Our drugs are distributed across 6 continents for the treatment of pathologies in cardiology, oncology, pneumology, inflammation and gastroenterology.

Menarini invests in the future and guarantees drug availability in the present for the improvement of patient health and well-being.

In its 9 Research & Development centers, Menarini’s main focus is dedicated to therapeutic areas with unresolved pathologies, such as oncology and anti-infectives (AMR), where increasing treatment options is fundamental to helping those in need. The Group's pipeline concentrates on innovative drugs and technologies including both small molecule and biologics for hematologic and solid tumors for greater personalized solutions.

The Group has also invested in diagnostics to develop instruments with high speed and precision for diagnoses in various fields such as clinical chemistry, diabetes, immunology, hematology, histology and point-of-care. In addition, Menarini is developing advanced technologies for the analysis of rare tumor cells with single cell precision.

From research to manufacturing, from distribution to scientific information, Menarini's goal is to achieve excellence.
