History

Laboratorios Rubió was founded in 1968 by SALVADOR AND PELAYO RUBIÓ, with the goal of selling medication that at that time were not available on the market in this country, since they were treatments for low prevalence diseases that did not attract anyone’s attention. Both brothers, pharmacists by profession, left the traditional pharmacy behind in order to create an innovative company, inspired by a clear vocation to serve society. With an extraordinary ability to understand what a healthcare professional needs in order to better perform their work and care for their patients, the Rubió brothers were pioneers in marketing calcium polystyrene sulfonate, a new drug to treat hyperkalaemia, which became the company’s first big success.

These 50 years, the company has launched important medicines and medical devices, with high added value, on the market which has led to a significant improvement to patients’ survival and quality of life.
