About Grifols

For more than 75 years, Grifols has worked to improve the health and well-being of people around the world. We are a global healthcare company that produces essential plasma medicines for patients and provides hospitals, pharmacies, and healthcare professionals with the tools, information, and services they need to help them deliver expert medical care.

Our three divisions—Bioscience, Diagnostic, and Hospital—develop, produce, and market innovative products and services available in more than 100 countries. Headquartered in Barcelona, Grifols has nearly 17,000 employees in 30 countries.

With the world's largest network of plasma donation centers, Grifols Bioscience Division is a leading producer of essential plasma medicines for the treatment of rare, chronic, and sometimes life-threatening conditions. To help ensure a reliable, consistent source of plasma medicines worldwide, Grifols has an all-inclusive process that begins with plasma collection and continues through fractionation, purification, and production at our three facilities located in Spain (Barcelona) and the United States (Clayton, North Carolina and Los Angeles, California).

A leader in transfusion medicine, Grifols Diagnostic Division advances patient care with diagnostic solutions to improve disease detection and management and simplify laboratory operations. Grifols Hospital Division provides intravenous (IV) therapies, clinical nutrition products, and hospital pharmacy systems, including systems that automate drug compounding and drug inventory control systems.

Industrial Manufacturing

Our manufacturing employees play a key role in meeting a growing global demand for our therapies.

All Grifols manufacturing facilities adhere to the highest quality and safety standards because patients and healthcare providers around the world depend on us.
Our manufacturing facilities hold environmental, quality, and workplace certifications, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 13485 and OHSAS 18001.

These sites are strategically located across the world to meet product demands. And we’re growing. We invested 268.3 million euros in 2016 to improve and expand our manufacturing facilities.

• Bioscience manufacturing facilities produce plasma-derived therapies for the treatment of rare diseases.
• Diagnostic manufacturing facilities produce antigen reagents for immunoassay, immunohematology, and hemostasis instruments and reagents, blood bags and molecular biology diagnostics products.

Grifols is one of the leading Spanish manufacturers of enteral and parenteral solutions in flexible and glass containers, which are manufactured at our Hospital product manufacturing facilities.

Commercial

Grifols is different from other pharmaceutical companies. Our products aren’t created in a lab.

Whether your expertise lies in sales, marketing, or business development, Grifols offers commercial employees the opportunity to promote products that improve people’s lives around the world.

A lot of work, time and dedication go into making our products in the following divisions:

• Bioscience: Plasma-derived therapies for the treatment of rare diseases and conditions in the therapeutic areas of pulmonology, hematology, neurology, immunology, passive immunization, and shock, trauma, and burns

• Diagnostic: Innovative diagnostic solutions and products that improve disease detection and management and simplify laboratory operations

• Hospital: Automated hospital pharmacy products and logistics solutions, intravenous (IV) therapies, and clinical nutrition products

With product sales in more than 100 countries, Grifols had 4.049.8 million euros in revenue in 2016.

And this is just the beginning. As one of the Top 100 Most Innovative Companies in the world according to Forbes magazine, Grifols allocated 5.4% of our 2016 annual income to research and development projects in areas such as Alzheimer’s disease and personalized medicine.

Plasma Operations

It takes 1,200 plasma donations to treat ONE hemophilia patient for ONE year.
Our business starts with our plasma center employees and valued donors.

Grifols obtains most of the plasma used to make our therapies through our growing network of 170+ plasma donation centers in the US. Plasma is donated in a highly controlled, sterile environment; donors abide by strict quality and safety criteria that include donor screening and testing requirements set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Employees in our donation centers have an array of backgrounds, including nursing, phlebotomy, medical support, customer service, and quality and business management. We encourage our employees to continue their education through our Grifols Academy of Plasmapheresis and its partnership with College for America through Southern New Hampshire University. This flexible program is designed for working adults and is provided at no cost for employees who qualify for the Grifols Tuition Program.

Employees further their plasma science knowledge via the Grifols Academy of Plasmapheresis. The Center Leadership Development Program develops donor center leaders’ managerial and customer service skills, quality and business acumen.

Plasma employees are active in local communities through key partnerships, events, and volunteerism. To further our reach, Grifols plans to operate 225 plasma donation centers in the U.S. by 2021.
