Our aspiration is to make great things happen. With our research-driven specialty businesses, we help patients, customers, partners and our communities around the world to live a better life. We deliver entrepreneurial success through innovation.
Founded in Darmstadt, Germany in 1668 by Friedrich Jacob Merck, we are the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and
chemical company. Today, the Merck family remains the majority owner of the company.
Over the course of nearly 350 years, we have become a truly global company. Our approximately 50,000 employees work in 66 countries and are united by their passion for new ideas, the possibilities of technology, and the potential to make a difference in the world.
We are known as Merck internationally. In the United States and Canada, however, 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.
