For major operations, time is needed; time is needed for an organisation to be solid and strong right from the start. Alfasigma, an all-Italian pharmaceutical company, was founded on these assumptions: the outcome of the union between the Alfa Wassermann and Sigma-Tau groups - in operations since the middle of the last century - it immediately became one of the top five operators in the pharmaceutical sector in Italy, inheriting the high values and acknoledged expertise of these historic italian groups and putting the focus on the potential and on the specialisation. Alfasigma is a highly competitive group, widely distributed across the nation but with a firm international outlook and furnished with the indispensable resources to fulfil its main tasks: research, development and innovation. A new adventure begun on the solid foundation of the past, forward-looking and facing future challenges with confidence, determination and, above all, great passion. The passion of knowing how to be transformed without ever losing sight of the identity and the objectives: the care and wellbeing of people and society.
