Our activities in the Benelux 

Bayer has set the course for successful development as a Life Science company. This translates into a company structure with the Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Health and Crop Science divisions. The Pharmaceuticals division focuses on medicines that are only available on prescription. Consumer Health mainly markets over-the-counter medicines and Crop Science is the world leader in crop protection products, vegetable seeds and non-agricultural pest management. 


Locations in the Benelux 

In the Benelux Bayer has very diverse activities at different locations: from R&D and production to Sales & Marketing. 2100 colleagues are committed to Bayer's divisions every day. In Belgium you will find our locations in Diegem, Antwerp and Brussels, and in the Netherlands you will find Bayer in Bergschenhoek, Maastricht, Enkhuizen, Hoofddorp and Wageningen.
