Pfizer marking 60 years of R&D in Groton
10 Jun 2019
Founded in Brooklyn, N.Y., Pfizer Inc. was 110 years old when it consolidated its medical research laboratory operations here in 1959.
In the 60 years since, the Groton site has had a hand in the discovery and development of such medicines as Zoloft and Zithromax and, more recently, Xalkori and Xeljanz. Today, nearly everything Pfizer produces is developed at its 160-acre complex on Eastern Point Road, where more than 2,600 people work in 2.8 million square feet of space.
Pfizer Groton has been observing the anniversary amid little fanfare.
