The history of the Company goes back to 1951 and a small cooperative society manufacturing only a few pharmaceutics for local market. It was the origin of the Company, which during the half of century of its existence systematically extended the assortment of products, manufacturing the medicines of higher and higher quality and efficacy.
In nineties they decided to build from the beginning a completely new plant, which occurred to be the biggest investment of pharmaceutical industry in Poland.
During all these years, together with dynamic development, the form of property has been changing too. In 1971 a state company Rzeszowskie Zakłady Farmaceutyczne „Polfa” was founded, which manufactured more and more preparations, not only for domestic market. Then, the Company was transformed into the company wholly owned by the State Treasury. The next step in the history of the Company organization is connected with October 1997, when an international consortium ICN Pharmaceuticals Inc became the owner of Rzeszow company, which is called now Bausch Health Companies, Inc.
ICN Polfa Rzeszów S.A. still obtains excellent economical results, and is a successful competitor of the biggest manufacturers of medicines both on Polish and foreign markets. It is in the lead of the most modern plants in Poland and reliable partners. As a manufacturer of medicines, it offers unique products, manufactured in modern, friendly area, according to GMP rules and the requirements of worldwide pharmacopoeias.
