About LEO Pharma
LEO Pharma’s beginnings date back to 1908, when pharmacists Anton Antons and August Kongsted purchased a pharmacy in Copenhagen. Production started in the basement under their new shop, and eventually the two pharmacists received royal privilege from King Frederick VIII, to run what is nowadays known as the LEO Pharmacy.
By 1914 the pharmacy had already achieved many milestones. In 1912, LEO Pharma introduced Albyl®, the best-selling painkilling product in Denmark, and by 1914 the company started to work its way to becoming globally recognised by establishing its first affiliate, AB LEO Helsingborg in Sweden.
In 1984, the LEO foundation was incorporated to be able to provide the company with a strong foundation to market pharmaceutical drugs. Moving forward to 1990s, the company continued to enjoy multiple successes. In 1991, LEO Pharma launched two of the most renowned products, followed by the keystone psoriasis product, in 2001. The company celebrated its centennial in the year 2008 – with affiliates in 26 countries, products being sold in more than 90 countries, and a record turnover, LEO Pharma truly achieved its goal of having a globally recognised status.
