Abbott has facilities in more than 40 countries and markets its products in more than 130 countries. More than 60,000 Abbott employees around the world have devoted their careers to advancing the practice of health care. The largest concentration of Abbott employees is in Lake County, Ill., home to both corporate headquarters at Abbott Park and the company's principal manufacturing location at North Chicago. Still, less than one-third of all Abbott employees are located in Illinois. The majority of our employees are spread across the United States and around the world.

Abbott is building a global portfolio around two key groups - pharmaceuticals and medical products - that form a strategically cohesive business mix.

Our Pharmaceutical Products Group strives to consistently discover, develop and market breakthrough drugs that improve patient health, especially in areas of unmet medical need. The group's primary focus is on translating innovative science into effective medicine and spans several areas, including the Pharmaceutical Products Division, the Nutritionals Division and Abbott International, as well as TAP Pharmaceuticals Inc., Abbott's joint venture with Takeda Chemical Industries, Ltd.

Our Medical Products Group is building leading businesses in hospital based medicines and devices, diagnostic tests and instruments, and nutritionals for adults and children, while identifying ways to promote health through the linkage of drugs, devices, diagnostics and nutritional products.

There's a world of inspiration that you can only get from being a part of the Abbott team. That's because we are made up of people who are passionate about life, health care and the contributions they can make.

For over a century, innovation and success in the areas of pharmaceuticals, nutritionals and diagnostics has enabled Abbott to provide total, integrated solutions for some of the world's most prevalent medical conditions, including: AIDS, cancer and diabetes.

Abbott technologies span the health care spectrum and play a key role in the way people get well and stay healthy. And with $22 billion in sales in more than 130 countries, we don't just see a better world - we're positioned to make it happen.
