Company Profile

This country and its people have offered so much to the company since its arrival in 1962 and, in return, we offer not only our products, but also our values and opportunities.

The history of Martin Dow Marker Ltd., formerly Merck (Pvt.)

Corporate Identity

2015

We have launched a new corporate theme for Martin Dow. The new theme is depicted through fingerprints and is based on the concept of having a unique identity, which is essential for every organization to make its mark. Fingerprints represent our distinction in the industry. To involve employees, we conducted an activity whereby fellow colleagues from the Head Office and Field Force were picked randomly through their employee codes by their respective division heads. After the random section process, their fingerprints were taken printed on canvases and placed throughout the Head Office. The colorful canvases constantly remind us of our inclusive approach to business and our unique identity.

2010

June 2010 saw the realization of one of Pakistan’s biggest business deals of the pharmaceutical industry ever, with the acquisition of Roche Pakistan’s manufacturing facility and brands licensing by Martin Dow. It was an exchange of strategic ideas, operational infrastructure and powerhouse of talent. We depicted the acquisition through a fish jumping from a smaller bowl to a bigger one, showing expansion as well as growth and commitment. Martin Dow not only took over the manufacturing facility and the then leading brands of Roche; it also captured a legacy of operational excellence and high-quality standards. Martin Dow symbolizes strength that is synonymous with quality health care.
