STADA operation in the Asian region began with the establishment of its regional office in Hong Kong in 1992. It was initially a joint venture company with another German partner. In 1994, Stada AG Germany became the sole owner and thereafter the company became a 100% subsidiary of Stada AG and was renamed STADA Pharmaceuticals (Asia) Limited.
During the initial stage of operation, the main business activity of STADA Asia in the region was the export of the generic products from STADA AG, Germany. A series of promotional programs collaborating closely with the respective agents in the region were carried out to establish the STADA brand.
with the market development and business trend, STADA Asia extends its
business infrastructure into various important markets in the region,
notably in China, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines, starting from
1999. From that point onwards, there was no looking back.
