Hungary has a long tradition in the pharmaceutical industry, but its stimulating effect on the economy appears to be limited.

Hungarians are proud of their chemical and pharmaceutical industries, which are over a hundred years old, and like to refer to the Hungarian roots of the Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, Zsigmondy, Hevesy, Pollányi, and Oláh. A lot has happened since the end of World War II.

Budapest-based Gedeon Richter is the flagship manufacturer of the Hungarian pharmaceutical industry.

The company was founded in 1901 by pharmacist Gedeon Richter and is now a global player. Medicines, active ingredients, and intermediate products are manufactured and produced, and marketed at the two locations in Hungary and factories in other countries.

Also, the portfolio includes almost a hundred pharmaceutical products. The knowledge in steroid chemistry accumulated over many years has enabled the company to become one of the world’s leading players in the market for gynecological drugs.

The most recent events have shown that in addition to cutting-edge research, the industry also uses the most modern production technology. Gedeon Richter invested more than € 35 million in new production facilities, € 5 million of which in process automation. Contracts for three projects to automate steroid production at Dorog have been awarded to ABB.
