Why Generics?

At Mylan, we have one global quality standard in everything we do.

Because there is nothing generic about our standards. Our internal teams conduct reviews of all products, start to finish. No matter where in the world they are made. 

Why such high standards? Because we truly care about the people who will be helped by the medicines we make. And we believe in earning that trust from doctors, chemists, other health care professionals and patients, every day. It’s why we say, “Our Mylan Is Your Mylan”. 

The first generic medicine we ever made? Penicillin G in 1966. Mylan applies one global quality standard across our facilities, and across our product line, regardless of market.
