Creation and Innovation lie on
a path not taken by others.
That is the Hanmi-Way.

Discovering creation and innovation in a path not taken by others.

Pharmacist Sung-ki Lim greeting customers wearing a white gown and name tag in his Pharmacy


Hanmi Way Beginning

The birthplace of Hanmi Pharmaceutical was 'Sung-ki Lim’s Pharmacy' run by pharmacist Sung-ki Lim, the founder.

On June 15, 1973, pharmacist Sung-ki Lim acquired the license for 'Daedong Pharm', which owned only five types of medicines at the time and established 'Sung-ki Lim Pharmaceutical' with his name on it.

In July 1973, prior to the approval of the company’s first product, TS Powder, the company name was changed to ‘Hanmi Pharmaceutical’.

Hanmi Pharmaceutical recognizes the first Saturday in October, TS Powder’s approval date, as the official date of its founding rather than the date the company was legally registered.

Hanmi R&D Conviction,
The Beginning of Innovation

In 1989, Hanmi Pharmaceutical signed an agreement with Roche of Switzerland to transfer the exclusive right to use ceftriaxone formulation technology.

This contract, which is recognized as Korea's first case of technology export, served as a decisive opportunity for Hanmi to have the conviction that 'R&D management' was the key.

From then on, Hanmi Pharmaceutical started R&D management in earnest according to Hanmi's philosophy of "Creating better medicines with our own hands".

It began to focus more on R&D, convinced that this could bring innovation to existing medicines, such as microemulsion technology.

Hanmi R&D Expansion,
'R&D Management'

In 1997, with Korea suffering greatly in the midst of the IMF crisis, Hanmi Pharmaceutical signed a contract to export its independently developed microemulsion technology to Novartis, Switzerland, at a scale of $73 million, the largest amount in the pharmaceutical industry.

This contract gave Korean companies, and people struggling with the IMF confidence, hope, and comfort and served as an opportunity for people to experience tangible results that ‘R&D’ can contribute to the national economy beyond just one company.

Based on this, Hanmi Pharmaceutical focused more on its R&D management basis while expanding various R&D projects under development.

Speed Hanmi

Hanmi Pharmaceutical prepared for the introduction of the new policy to separate responsibility for the prescription and dispensing of drugs, which was enacted in 2001 and diversified its R&D-based prescription drug portfolio and experienced explosive growth every year.

By 2004, Hanmi, outside the top 10 in the industry sales rankings, leaped to become the top-selling company in the Korean pharmaceutical industry. At that time, 'Amodipin', an antihypertensive drug, was Korea's first incrementally modified drug and served as a stepping stone for the explosive growth of Hanmi Pharmaceutical.

Since then, Hanmi Pharmaceutical has continued to lead the Korean prescription drug market by continuously introducing competitive new drugs such as Maxibupen, Slimer, and Pidogul to the market.

Hanmi ‘Amosartan’ Opening the Way for
Fixed Dose

‘Amosartan’, an antihypertensive drug released by Hanmi Pharmaceutical in 2009, is the world’s first fixed-dose combination developed from Amlodipine and Losartan and is a product of innovation that has drastically changed the landscape of the Korean pharmaceutical market, which was previously centered around generics.

Amosartan recorded prescription sales of KRW 10 billion in the first year of its release, eliciting an explosive response from medical staff and patients.

The sensation of Amosartan has created a ‘combined drug’ trend in the Korean pharmaceutical market, and many leading Korean pharmaceutical companies are competing to develop complex drugs.

New Drug R&D Leading a Paradigm Shift in the R&D Ecosystem

In 2015 alone, Hanmi Pharmaceutical signed licensing agreements with six global pharmaceutical companies, including Sanofi and Janssen, to transfer technology for seven innovative new drug candidates at a scale of KRW 8 trillion.

Hanmi's innovative achievements, recorded in the largest new drug out-licensing contract in Korea, will lead to another innovation in the Korean biopharmaceutical industry ecosystem that is centered on R&D.

It also served as an opportunity to establish the 'Korean R&D' model, a step-by-step R&D strategy for Hanmi, from first generics to incrementally modified drugs, fixed-dose combinations, and innovative new drugs.Hanmi's R&D capabilities are further strengthened, through various types of open innovation.
