Abbott

Abbott has a rich heritage and history that goes back more than 125 years, when our company was founded by Chicago physician Wallace C. Abbott.  Now, Abbott has become one of leading broad based global health care company devoted to discovering new medicines, new technologies and new ways to manage health. Our products span the continuum of care, from nutritional products and laboratory diagnostics through medical devices and pharmaceutical therapies. Our comprehensive line of products encircles life itself –addressing important health needs from infancy to the golden years.

Abbott appoints nearly 70,000 employees and have a presence in more than 130 countries.  We are here for the people we serve in their pursuit of healthy lives. This has been the way of Abbott for more than a century – passionately and thoughtfully translating science into lasting contributions to health.

Abbott was also named top dealmaker for four consecutive years due to the big number of transformations such as acquisitions and mergers, with the most recent, acquisition of ex-Solvay and split of AbbVie (one of Abbott major division) into a separate entity.

Values are the foundation for building a meaningful corporate identity. While Abbott is a company rooted in values, not all values can shape a company’s identity in a meaningful and differentiating way. For instance, Abbott’s core values of honesty, integrity and fairness describe a standard of behavior expected of every Abbott employee.
