Description of the company

Merck Sharp & Dohme, or MSD, is a research and development-oriented pharmaceutical company.

Its origins date back to 1668 in Germany as a pharmacy acquired by Friedrich Jacob Merk, which remained a family business for decades until 1816 when Emanuel Merk and his sons converted it into a pharmaceutical and chemical factory.

Several decades later, the Merck family created Merck & Co. in New York, USA, as the company's first foreign subsidiary, although it suffered some problems during World War I, it managed to establish itself as an independent organization, merging in 2009 with Schering-Plough.

Currently headquartered in Kenilworth (New Jersey), with more than thirty factories distributed in various parts of the world and covering a market of 120 countries, it has more than 56 thousand employees, making it one of the most important companies in its area, even larger than its German parent company.
