About us

The Roche Group – a global, research-focused healthcare group with combined strengths in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics – has been headquartered in Basel ever since it was founded in 1896.

The site is steadily developing alongside the company, contributing to ground-breaking medical successes for more than 115 years. Today, Basel/Kaiseraugst is one of the biggest Roche sites in the world and one of the largest employers in the region. Around 10,400 employees from more than 90 nations work in Basel/Kaiseraugst Roche is fully integrated into the city and municipality. Good relations with our neighbours and local residents’ associations are therefore just as important to us as working with the local authorities.

The entire value chain under one roof

Roche's Group and divisional management is based at the Basel/Kaiseraugst site. The site covers the entire value chain, from research and development through to production and product strategy and actively pursues research in the following areas: NORD (Neurosciences, Ophthalmology and Rare Diseases), Infectious Diseases, Immunology and Inflammation and Oncology.

Kaiseraugst is a key cornerstone of Roche's global production and logistics network. The state-of-the-art centre of excellence for sterile production and the world's largest packaging centre serve numerous customers in some 130 markets each year.
