In the Philippines, Boehringer Ingelheim is likewise an industry leader, recognized as one of the largest multinational pharmaceutical companies in the country. The business of Boehringer Ingelheim (Philippines), Inc., or BIPHI, has rapidly grown since it began its operations 55 years ago. Not only have its products become recognized for their efficacy and reasonable cost, many of them are current leaders in their respective markets. Such an impressive footprint, plus a constant stream of healthcare innovations, sustain the leadership strength of BIPHI.

To support its continuous growth here and around the world, Boehringer Ingelheim has been undertaking a global expansion program, a part of which is the establishment of shared services centers. Two of these centers are located in Ingelheim, Germany and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

A third shared services center is now ready to open its doors — Boehringer Ingelheim Business Services Philippines, Incorporated (BIBSPI). With its office in Alabang, Muntinlupa, the Philippines, as the location of its most recently added shared services center was an uncomplicated decision for the Boehringer Ingelheim Board of Managing Directors. Apart from the country’s ideal location in Southeast Asia, the Filipino workforce is also reputed as being exceptionally skilled, widely articulate in numerous international languages, notably efficient and exceedingly dedicated. From an economic standpoint, BIBSPI creates more job opportunities for Filipinos.
