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 employs over 700 people and exports to 40 countries around the world. Douglas has sites in Fiji and Pennsylvania and is New Zealand’s largest family owned healthcare company.
