The company has several pharmaceutical and diagnostic sites around the world, including some in North America, South America, Asia, and the Middle East. Roche also owns the Japanese biotech company Chugai Pharmaceuticals and American biotech companies Genentech and Ventana.

Products & Services

Roche’s operations are split into two divisions: Pharmaceuticals and Diagnostics. The company is among the industry leaders in in-vitro diagnostics, tissue-based cancer diagnostics, and diabetes management. The company also specializes in personalized health care, designed to target specific needs, as each patient differs from the next. Roche sells its products in more than 150 countries.


Fritz Hoffman-La Roche founded Roche in 1896 to produce vitamin preparations and derivatives. It soon became the first company to mass-produce synthetic Vitamin C. Roche has continued to expand into various areas of research and has since acquired other entities, such as Biomedical Reference Laboratories. The company now employs over 80,000 people worldwide and is a full member of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).

Job Opportunities

Roche is a privately held company under Roche Holding AG. Descendants of the founding Hoffman and Oeri families are the majority owners, with Novartis, a Swiss pharmaceutical firm, owning a further third. Careers at Roche are available in the fields of marketing, development, and research. Internships or apprenticeships are offered to students.
