About Us

The company’s beginning could be traced back to 1830, 310 years after Ferdinand Magellan discovered the Philippines in 1521. It was at that time when a young Spanish physician and apothecary named Lorenzo Negrao came to the Philippines and started a small but enterprising shop. Over the years, the shop grew and changed ownership several times. In 1884, Reinhold Boie bought the rights to the shop. BOTICA BOIE was established.

Much later though, ownership of Botica Boie was again passed to a group of prominent American and Filipino financiers who formed and organized Philippine American Drug Co. (PADCO). In 1918, the company became known as PADCO-BOTICA BOIE.

On May 22, 1948, Botica Boie Inc. was recognized as a corporation. Its main business activity was to wholesale and retail products manufactured by PADCO-BOTICA BOIE. During the same year PADCO-BOTICA BOIE was incorporated and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the name BOIE, INC. In 1963, PADCO’s manufacturing and agency activities were eventually absorbed by BOIE, INC., the name of the company was henceforth formally known.

Boie Incorporated was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 22, 1948. The Company’s primary purpose is to carry on and conduct a general wholesale of drug and medicine business to retail drugstores. The Company’s registered office address is at 6/F Sycamore Prime Building, cor. Buencamino St., Alabang-Zapote Rd., Muntinlupa City.

The Company’s authorized capital stock was P10M, and with a total paid-up capital of P9.66M. Cumulative retained earnings as of Dec. 31, 2011 were at P41.6M or a total stockholder’s equity of P51.3M. Boie has total assets of P118.6M gross sales of P107.4M and total manpower count of 99 as of December 2011.

In 1968, it entered into a joint venture with Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited of Japan, primarily to engage in the importation of semi-finished pharmaceutical products and selling these products through promotion by medical representatives and distribution by pharmaceutical distributors. Boie-Takeda Chemicals, Inc., is 50% owned by Boie, Incorporated with registered address at 12th floor, Oledan Square, 6788 Ayala Avenue Makati City. Total Shareholders’ equity of Boie-Takeda Chemicals, Inc., as of March 31, 2011 was P161M.The book value of Boie’s 50% investment is P81M as of March 2011.

In 1998, Boie stopped its manufacturing operation and contracted out this function to Hizon, Laboratories. The Company focused its resources in the marketing and selling activities of drug and medicine products.

Boie Incorporated is a pharmaceutical company known for serving the Filipino families with quality products and services for 181 years. The company’s reputation in the industry is highly regarded since the time it joined the trade, earning for the company citations from different respected institutions.

In 2003, Boie was awarded as one of the Distinguished Enterprise of the Republic by the Chamber of Commerce of the Philippine Foundation Centennial (1903-2003). It was cited for its “173 years of strong commitment to bringing quality and affordable pharmaceutical products to the Filipino consumers and for its significant contribution to nation building through employment generation and wealth creation.”

BOIE was also awarded by the Department of Trade and Industry in October 1998 and was cited for its “pioneering venture over a century ago, staying on and surviving the challenges of the times, thus helping grow Philippine trade and industry to what it is today, and what it can be tomorrow.” DTI further cited BOIE for keeping faith in the future of the Philippines.

BOIE saw the country through its years of struggle for independence. It lived through two world wars, and witnessed the uphill battle of a new democratic nation slowly coming to life. BOIE is an imitable institution endowed with such wealth of history and tradition that a few other businesses in the Philippines can claim.

Today, competing mainly in the generics market, BOIE is able to prove that locally manufactured drugs can compete with the world’s best with respect to quality. The company takes pride that it is able to provide the public with safe, effective yet affordable alternatives to costly branded products, its way of extending the more-than-a-century of tradition touching the lives of Filipinos.
