Our History

Zentiva’s roots reach back more than 500 years to a small pharmacy, called Black Eagle, that still exists today in the heart of Prague, Czech Republic.

Today, five centuries later, Prague is still the heart of operations as the global headquarters for Zentiva. In Prague, we are leading the operations of 31 subsidiaries and 7 branches with active operations across 35 countries, supported by a team of almost 4 800 people. The diversity of our team is a great strength, and we are all united in our purpose to ensure the supply of high-quality and affordable medicines to the people in Europe and beyond who depend on them every day.

Back in 2018, Zentiva became an independent company, backed by Advent International.

From 2020 onwards, we have been expanding our business to new territories in Europe and complemented our portfolio in main therapeutical areas. And our exciting growth journey just began.

Within four years we were successful in doubling the size of the company, expanding our geographical footprint to all of Europe, covering main therapeutical areas and standard treatments.

By offering our products and services at a high-quality, and at the same time an affordable price, we make a huge contribution to public health.
