Our history

AbbVie was founded in 2013 when we became a separate company from Abbott. Our name represents a proud connection to that legacy.

Since the beginning, our mission hasn't wavered. Our combination of focused innovation and commercial scale brings differentiated products to market that benefit patients, customers and health care providers.
