Our history

Orion Laboratories Pty Ltd., now Perrigo Australia, was founded in 1985 by two young chemists. In 1988 directors of Delta West, a West Australian-based pharmaceutical manufacturer, purchased a majority holding on Orion and enhanced its specialist manufacturing capabilities.

In 1991, Orion was released from the group when Upjohn purchased Delta West. As a privately owned and independent company Orion grew rapidly into one of Australia's few pharmaceutical manufacturers and suppliers, particularly focused on hospitals.

Orion moved to its expanded manufacturing facility in Balcatta in 2004, from where it operates today.  In March 2010 Perrigo acquired Orion and later continued its growth with the acquisition of Omega Pharma in 2015. In February 2014 Perrigo has acquired a wide range of Herron®-branded consumer healthcare products.

Perrigo Australia has a Sales, Marketing and distribution office in Sydney and Sales Office in Brisbane.
