The history of Eskayef traces back to 1979, when the company was incorporated in Bangladesh as a subsidiary of the world-renowned multinational pharmaceutical company

SmithKline & French (SK&F), USA.


In 1990, SmithKline & French’s Bangladesh operation was acquired by Transcom Group in the wake of the merger between SmithKline & French, USA and Beecham, UK. That was the first instance of taking over of any multinational company by a Bangladeshi entity. After the acquisition, the new company was named

Eskayef Bangladesh Limited.


As Eskayef continued to increase its presence in the international arena, it was the time to project Eskayef as a figure not only confined to Bangladesh but also in the global pharmaceutical world. This led to the company emerging as

Eskayef Pharmaceuticals Limited.
