A Leading HealthTech Company

Merck Group China

Merck is a leading science and technology global company, active in Healthcare, Life Science and Performance Materials. In the recent years, Merck has been constantly working on breakthrough solutions and technologies in more than 66 countries.

To further develop its innovation, Merck Innovation Centre was set up to bring people, technologies and skills from different areas under one roof. It is the place where innovative ideas and projects are born and grow. These make way for new products and services, and open up exciting opportunities across all their business sectors.

“Today, Asia Pacific, in particular China, is a significant source of growth and investment for Merck, Sales across Merck’s three pillar businesses, namely health care, life science and performance materials, jumped 18 percent to 1.9 billion euros (US$2.15 billion) in China last year and we plan to double that by 2025.”
