Merck is a leading science and technology company, active in Healthcare, Life Science and Performance Materials. Our pursuit is progress for people everywhere. Our ideas are everywhere: from cancer therapies and laboratory tools to the display of your smartphone or the effect pigment coating of your car. That's why we take a closer look at things, ask questions and think ahead. We've been around for 350 years, yet our majority owners are still the descendants of Friedrich Jacob Merck, the man who founded our company in Darmstadt, Germany in 1668. In Italy we are present with more than one thousand employees and we operate in all the three sectors Healthcare, Life Science and Performance Materials. We are located in Roma, Guidonia Montecelio (RM), Modugno (BA), Colleretto Giacosa (TO) and Milano.
