Douglas Pharmaceuticals is a New Zealand success story – a family-owned pharmaceutical company with a reputation for high manufacturing standards, quality products and outstanding client service.
We work hard to be the best and that effort has been recognised through the assortment of awards and acknowledgments we have earned over the years. Most recently, in 2022, we were ranked second by TIN (Technology Investment Network) on the TIN200 Healthtech Companies list for leading the way in the Diagnostics & Therapeutics category, and in 2023, our People & Culture team were awarded HR Team of the Year at the 2023 HRD Awards for their outstanding service in putting our people at the core of what they do.
Douglas was founded in 1967 by West Auckland chemist Sir Graeme Douglas who dispensed prescription medicines. In 1980 he turned his hand to manufacturing and by the 1990s he was successfully researching and developing his own products for the domestic and international markets.
Today, Douglas is New Zealand’s largest family-owned healthcare company. We employ over 700 people in New Zealand and Fiji and export to 40 countries around the world.
