The company is the legacy of Colonel Eli Lilly. Lilly founded the company in 1876 and served as the company president up until 1898, when he passed away. Selling “ethical drugs” for medical professionals, the company achieved $4,470 in its first year of sales and later established facilities for research and development. The company grew and employed family members as well. Throughout its history, Eli Lilly was headed by various Lilly men. Both son and grandson of the founder were both also named presidents, succeeding Colonel Lilly. The company modernized during the early to mid 1900s and then expanded through drug developments and a company reorganization. Recently, Eli Lilly has announced an agreement with Boehringer Ingelheim.
