About Aspen Philippines

"Aspen has a proud heritage dating back more than 160 years.
The Group is committed to sustaining life and promoting healthcare through increasing access to its high quality, effective, affordable medicines and products."


Aspen Holdings was founded in the year 1850 as Lennon Limited in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the originator company to the Group today that now manufactures, markets, and supplies branded and generic pharmaceuticals in more than 150 countries across the globe and of consumer and nutritional products in selected territories.

With the Aspen Group’s stated intention to expand into Asia Pacific markets, in March 2012, the first South African pharmaceutical company in the Philippines was established namely, Aspen Philippines Incorporated.

What started off as a one-employee company, Aspen Philippines Incorporated now boasts over 100 dedicated Filipino personnel who provide high quality and innovative ethical and consumer pharmaceutical products. In fact, according to Information Management System (IMS), the company’s rank in the Top Ethical Pharma Marketing Companies has moved up from the 38th last June 2012 to 34th in December of the same year. Afterwards, it went to 32nd, as the company closed its first full fiscal year in June 2013. This is a living proof that the one-year old company is keen on making big things happen, not to mention making them happen fast with a ton of impact.

Clearly, Aspen Philippines is headed towards the major league of pharmaceutical companies, strongly competing with other major players in the industry.

Quality Products for Filipinos

Aspen Philippines Incorporated provides to both healthcare professionals and consumers a range of high quality and innovative ethical, OTC and consumer products. All of which are imported from the Group’s world-class manufacturing facilities in Malaysia, South Africa and Germany. Though, reputable local manufacturers in the Philippines also supply certain products. This, ultimately, makes the company the home of original, trusted brands of medicines.

Aspen Philippines is one of the Group’s units in the Asia-Pacific market - a growing one at that. Furthermore, it is represented in South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Dubai, Germany, Ireland, Mauritius, Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico and Venezuela with 26 manufacturing facilities at 18 pharmaceutical manufacturing sites across 6 continents.
