The path to success

IBSA Institut Biochimique SA is a privately owned, pharmaceutical company founded in 1945 by a group of Swiss biologists. Based in Lugano, Switzerland, IBSA started its activities at a national level but rapidly became a well consolidated company worldwide. IBSA markets its products in 5 continents which means more than 80 countries, including the US. IBSA’s history can be divided into 2 main periods from its beginning 1945 to 1985 when the current management took over and completely re-defined the company strategy leading to the first international development and to its present global reputation.


1985 was the year of “changes”: an intensive and exceptional development program was implemented with the aim of enlarging the company assets and creating a competitive product portfolio to be extended to international markets.

As a result of this massive commercial revolution, IBSA currently has a head count of about 1300 employees and its products cover 7 main therapeutic areas in 5 continents and more than 80 countries. Each year the company manufactures about 14 millions vials of hormones, more than 300 millions soft gel capsules and about 60 millions packages of finished products. These are the numbers of a well deserved success.
