Novo Nordisk Company History Timeline


Novo Nordisk is a leading global healthcare company, founded in 1923 and headquartered in Denmark.


The Novo Foundation was not established until 1951, nearly three decades after the Nordisk Insulin Foundation was created, with Thorvald Pedersen as Chair and with both he and Harald Pedersen as life members of the Board.


In 1973, Novo Terapeutisk Laboratorium and Novo Industri merged and became Novo Industri A/S, the internationally known name.


In 1974, Novo Industri A/S was listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange, with the Novo Foundation retaining a controlling interest in accordance with the Articles of Association and the owners’ wishes.


When at last they decided to merge in 1989, they created Novo Nordisk.
