50 years of delivering world-leading veterinary products

Celebrating 50 years in business, Norbrook, one of the largest privately owned veterinary pharmaceutical manufacturers in the world, plans to mark the occasion with progress, through a multi-million pound capital investment programme and a strong new product development pipeline.

Norbrook is a leading global provider of veterinary pharmaceuticals enhancing the health of farm and companion animals. Established in 1969 by the late Lord Ballyedmond in Newry, Northern Ireland, we are an award-winning company and one of the largest privately owned, veterinary pharmaceutical manufacturers in the world. We are proud to recognise 50 years in business in 2019. Our focus is on developing veterinary products, being the first generic to market, and providing features and benefits that differentiate our product offering while building on our continued success since 1969.

We deliver trusted, quality brands for our customers, and we continue to drive the business forward through a multi-million pound capital investment programme and a strong new product development pipeline, consolidating the company’s position in the global animal health market. We have a strong history of product innovation and invest a significant portion of our revenue each year in research and development.

Norbrook is increasingly bringing new products and innovation to vets and pet owners in the companion animal health sector, as part of our strategy to better balance our portfolio of farm to companion animal products in line with market needs. We have launched 11 new products in the past four years, with plans to launch nine additional new products in the next two years.

The company’s capital investment programme has included two state-of-the-art laboratories, to strengthen our scientific division and support our quality commitments across the business. Additionally, we have invested heavily in our manufacturing facilities, to upgrade and expand our manufacturing capability. We continue to make significant investment in our global IT infrastructure to drive enhanced productivity.

Norbrook is proud to support farmers, pet owners and the veterinary industry in Northern Ireland with innovative products and trusted brands over the past 50 years. We continue to work closely in partnership with our customers across the regions to meet their requirements in both farm animal and companion animal sectors.

We manufacture sterile and non-sterile products in a variety of dosage forms, including injectables, drenches, tablets, pour-ons, spot-ons, pastes, sprays and intramammaries. Our portfolio of more than 300 trusted products includes antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, paraciticides, metabolites and vitamins, which are distributed in more than 100 countries through our regional sales teams and a network of long-standing distribution partners.

While we have a strong presence in Northern Ireland, Norbrook has a global sales team; a dedicated customer services team; and a network of more than 100 long established regional distribution partners working closely together to meet the needs of customers across the globe.

As we recognise 50 years in business, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers for their continued partnership, the local community, and our dedicated employees who have helped the company to grow into a successful business in Northern Ireland.

With your support, Norbrook is proud to represent Northern Ireland business on a global scale.
