Bayer's big transformation

The German pharmaceutical and chemical company is reinventing itself for the better.

Bayer is one of Germany’s largest companies and will generate around €47 billion ($US52bn) in revenues in 2015. Founded in 1863, its first commercially successful product was acetylsalicylic acid or what we know as “Aspirin.” It also pioneered the first widely used antibiotic (prontosil) for which it won the 1939 Nobel Prize.

Now Bayer is a global pharmaceutical and chemical company. It has three main business units: Healthcare, CropScience and MaterialScience.
