History

The company’s origins trace as far back as 1858, when Edward R. Squibb founded a pharmaceutical laboratory in Brooklyn, New York. Squibb soon became the source of medicines for the Union Army during the Civil War. In 1878, two friends, William M. Bristol and John R. Myers, purchased a struggling drug manufacturing firm and renamed it Bristol-Myers. The two companies, separate at the time, thrived and eventually merged in 1989 to create Bristol-Myers Squibb.
