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.

We are also dedicated to “doing the right thing” – whether it is the way we manufacture our products, interact with key stakeholders, impact the communities in which we operate, or work together to deliver on our business goals.
