Since 1970, Abbott in Singapore has been dedicated to helping people across the Asia-Pacific region live healthier lives through a diverse range of science-based nutritional products, diagnostic tools, medical devices and branded generic pharmaceuticals.
ADVANCING HEALTH AND WELLNESS IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC
Home to around 900 employees, one of our most significant facilities globally and our Asia-Pacific distribution hub, Abbott in Singapore marks the company’s dedication to creating jobs, developing the highest-quality products and finding lasting solutions to the unique health challenges across the region.
We’re committed to developing locally manufactured healthcare solutions designed specifically for this market—from manufacturing nutritional products that give babies a strong start, to developing pharmaceuticals that help aging adults stay active and vital, to creating diagnostics tools that supply the majority of HIV viral load testing for Singapore's public healthcare system.
INVESTING IN SCIENCE AND INNOVATION
Whether we’re training eye care specialists and engineers to ensure local patients can benefit from the latest refractive surgical treatments or creating cutting-edge products designed for the region’s nutritional needs, we’re at the forefront of science and innovation in everything we do.
The Abbott Nutrition Asia-Pacific Research & Development Center in Singapore's Biopolis Research Park is the country’s first nutrition R&D site and Abbott’s largest nutrition facility outside the U.S. The center houses around 65 scientists and staff focusing on food and sensory science, novel ingredient evaluation and clinical nutrition science to tailor products, flavors and packaging to the taste preferences and specific nutritional needs of people in all stages of life throughout Asia.
WORLD-CLASS FACILITIES ADDRESSING LOCAL NEEDS
Abbott Manufacturing Singapore, a 500,000 square-foot nutritional manufacturing facility, is the largest nutritional investment in Singapore by a single company and supports our commitment to growth in Asia. Adhering to the most stringent international manufacturing standards, the strategically located plant reduces product delivery time and extends shelf life, ensuring people throughout the region have access to safe and effective nutritional products that promote health and well-being for all ages.
SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
We’re dedicated to conducting business in a socially responsible way and making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. Here are just a few examples of how we’re making a difference in Singapore:
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FACILITIES
To ease the strain on this water-stressed region, we planned our Singapore facility from the ground up to minimize water usage, earning the Green Mark Gold certification from the Singapore Building and Construction Authority. Since then, we’ve implemented employee suggestions leading to an additional 50 percent drop in water and energy use. Learn more here.
INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION OF SCIENTISTS
We proudly sponsor educational programs that inspire kids to explore the wonders of innovation and invention. Encouraging young people to be more proficient in science, technology, engineering and math, these programs provide a pathway to a promising future for children across Singapore. Learn more here.
Our employees regularly participate in initiatives that support the local community, including partnering with Singapore’s Health Science Authority (HSA) for annual blood drives, taking part in the ComChest Heartstrings Walk to raise funds for the National Council of Social Services and more.
