Grifols, founded in 1940 by Dr. José Antonio Grifols, is a global healthcare company whose mission is to improve the health and well being of people around the world. We accomplish this mission by producing protein therapies for patients and by providing hospitals, pharmacies, and healthcare professionals with the tools they need to deliver expert medical care. Our three divisions–Bioscience, Diagnostic, and Hospital–develop, produce, and market our innovative products and services to medical professionals in more than 100 countries around the world.
Our extensive network of donor centers throughout the US helps ensure a reliable, consistent source of protein therapies worldwide. Grifols has established a vertical integration system, meaning we have an all-inclusive process beginning with plasma collection and continuing through the fractionation, purification, and production of our life-changing therapies. Our three plasma fractionation and production facilities, located in Barcelona (Spain), Clayton, North Carolina, and Los Angeles, California (US), carry out these processes. Each of these facilities operates in accordance with current Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and is FDA-licensed and certified by the European Union health authorities.
Our diagnostic division provides clinical analysis and lab testing tools to labs, hospitals, and blood banks to satisfy the demands of clinical laboratory professionals who require precise results and a reliable diagnosis. Our hospital division supplies pharmacies with standard parenteral solutions for intravenous therapy and products for clinical nutrition, as well as a wide variety of sterile products and medical devices.
While working toward improving healthcare worldwide, Grifols approaches all aspects of business with the Grifols Spirit. This is our way of relating to each other and the outside world and has made us the company we are today. As a company committed to serving people, we seek to hire and retain the very best employees and strive to create a dynamic, energetic organization. Ensuring quality, integrity, and safety in all activities is a crucial aspect of what we stand for, as our products are of vital importance to the health and quality of life of patients we serve.
