Biowet Puławy Ltd.
Biowet Puławy Ltd. is fully Polish modern veterinary medicine production plant. Our operations protect health of both animals and people. We supply latest generation effective and safe medicine for veterinary services, farming and breeding sectors.
As of present we offer more than 70 preparations, including vaccines, diagnostic preparations, antibiotics, calcium preparations, sulphonamides, antiparasitic preparations, mineral and vitamin supplements and a number of other specialized groups of medicines for multiple species of animals.
For 95 years preparations produced in Puławy have significantly contributed to controlling and keeping in check such dangerous diseases as rinder pest (viral cattle disease), TB, brucellosis, Newcastle disease, varroosis of honey bees. The 90s were a turning point for the existence of Biowet. An Act of Law titled “Resolution on privatization of the plant in the form of employee-owned company” has been signed. Following completion of the privatization process, in 1997, all employees became shareholders and at the same time also owners of the plant. From the perspective it is clear that company’s privatization proved highly successful, as one of the few.
