  • License-in

    Dong-A has achieved and maintained the No.1 position in the Korean pharmaceutical industry since 1967 by building competitive marketing capabilities and nation-wide sales networks.

    Leveraging such strong competency in the Korean market, Dong-A has set a new goal to become a global pharmaceutical player and as its first step, we have demerged to the holdings system, of which our parent firm is Dong-A Socio Holdings as of March 2013.

    As a sole subsidiary of Dong-A Socio Holdings in prescription drug market, Dong-A ST is dedicated to developing, manufacturing and distributing ethical drugs while harnessing Dong-A’s value and reputation. Along with in-house developed products, Dong-A has attributed its strong growth to licensed-in products from overseas and domestic partners, where we have valued sustainable and long-term relationships. This is exemplified in our strategic partnership with Meiji Seika, which is dated back to 1959, when we established an antibiotics manufacturing plant and of which our values have continued and recently, set up a new alliance in Biosimilar business.

    Dong-A ST, equipped with a strong track-record in pharmaceutical development and sales, is actively exploring collaboration opportunities in product licensing and other ways of business alliance. For licensing-in, we are seeking novel and innovative treatments for chronic diseases, especially in CNS, CV and Metabolism as a priority target, while maintaining our excellence in the GI and Urology area. We also have a strong interest in licensing value-added products with improved pharmaco-economic profile compared to existing products.
