The Company was incorporated in 1967, started manufacturing pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals in 1972 and went public in 1977.

Syed Babar Ali - to this day the Chairman of the Board of Directors- had laid the foundation of the organization as Hoechst Pakistan Limited

The Company went through several changes of identity over the years as a result of global acquisitions, mergers and divestments. The Packages Group had remained the largest minority shareholder from the start while the Ali Gohar Group had a substantial shareholding as well.

In 2023, Sanofi Foreign Participant BV sold its entire shareholding in Sanofi aventis Pakistan limited to an investor consortium, including IGI Investments, and affiliates of Arshad Ali Gohar Group. The consortium effectively acquired controlling interest in the Company and changed the name to Hoechst Pakistan Limited.

Today, Hoechst Pakistan Limited is amongst the leading pharmaceutical companies in Pakistan, with a rich portfolio of effective medicines and treatments, enabling people to overcome health challenges and lead a healthy life.
