In 2010, Perrigo acquired Orion Laboratories, which was founded in 1985 by two young chemists to provide small-scale manufacturing services in the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry. The company grew rapidly into one of Australia's few pharmaceutical manufacturers and suppliers, particularly focused on serving hospitals. In 2004, Orion moved to its new expanded manufacturing facility in Balcatta, Western Australia, where it operates today.
Perrigo Perth manufactures more than 5 million units per year. Since Perrigo acquired the company, we have experienced further growth, become more efficient, and continue to make a difference offering antiseptics, cleaning and disinfecting products, skin and oral care and other therapeutic pharmaceuticals to organizations and hospitals seeking specialized product manufactured in a TGA-approved facility.
