For most people, taking a Bayer Aspirin is the initial introduction to our company. But products made by Bayer are found not just in medicine cabinets but in nearly every bedroom, living room, kitchen, garage, hospital, farm and factory across America. Our products help preserve local landmarks, advance automobile safety and durability, diagnose and treat disease, and protect crops, homes and pets from pests.
We help improve individual lives each day in hundreds of ways--some large, some small. The crystal-clear crisper in your refrigerator probably got its start as one of our plastic resins, and the lettuce it holds fought off pests with the help of our crop protection products. Your car is safer and your couch is plumper thanks to our polyurethane. And, our scientists are making sure that you, your family and your pets are protected from illness.
We pride ourselves in being research-driven, with businesses in HealthCare, MaterialScience and CropScience. But we're also proud of our environmental record, our safety performance and our manufacturing prowess. And you can only imagine our pride at being named one of Fortune magazine's most admired companies.
We have manufacturing operations and sales offices throughout the United States. You'll find that our culture of innovation with responsibility permeates every location and every action we take--from how we treat our employees and customers to our involvement in the local communities.
