Bayer AG is a German chemical and pharmaceutical company. It was founded by Friedrich Bayer in 1836 who was a chemical salesman (1825-80) and his friend Friedrich Weskott (1821-76) who owned a dye company.

A friendship collaboration out of sheer natural curiosity led to experimentation with dyes and eventually led to the discovery of how to make a pharmaceutical company. Bayer is the only global company performing research in the field of both health and agriculture.

The systematic and expanded collaboration between the researchers is finding new avenues with novel and innovative solutions. The success is entirely on the research and development of its strategies in a scientific and systematic way.
