Founded in 1848, Pfizer is the world's largest research pharmaceutical manufacturers, working in human pharmaceuticals and animal health sectors. With 87,000 employees in more than 80 countries, the company generates an annual turnover of almost 50 billion US dollars. Each year, Pfizer Manufacturing Deutschland GmbH at Illertissen produces more than 80 million packs of solid and liquid human pharmaceuticals.
