Our History

AbbVie may have been founded in 2013, but our roots run deep. In 2013, we became a separate company from Abbott, though we share a common legacy and strong prospects for future success.

Our name represents our connection to the past and the future. When we became our own company, AbbVie formed a new kind of enterprise—a biopharmaceutical company. We blend the stability, global scale, resources and commercial capabilities of a pharmaceutical company with the focus and culture of a biotech.

Today, our ~30,000 employees around the world focus on delivering transformational medicines and therapies that offer significant patient benefits.
