History of Nicoderm
The history of SmithGlaxoKline resembles an ancestral family tree rather than the beginnings of a company. The forebearers are illustrious and fruitful. The very first seed was planted in 1715 when Silvanus Bevan established Plough Court pharmacy, the forerunner of Allen and Hanburys Ltd, in London.
In the 1800’s, new shoots sprout. John K. Smith and his brother-in-law, John Gilbert, open a drugstore in Philadelphia. Thomas Beecham, opens the first factory in the world dedicated to producing medicines in St. Helens in England. Mahlon Kline joins Smith & Shoemaker in 1865. By 1875, he is rewarded by the business name change to Smith, Kline & Company. Joseph Nathan, the founder of Glaxo, emigrates to Australia and starts a successful general merchandising business, later starting a second office in London. American pharmacists Henry Wellcome and Silas Burroughs established Burroughs Wellcome & Company in London four years after Joseph Nathan. Smith, Kline and Company acquires French, Richards and Company.
In the 1900’s, Smith, Kline becomes Smith, Kline & French and still later, Smith, Kline & Beckman. The Wellcome Tropical Research Laboratories opens. Wellcome opens its first U.S. subsidiary. The Glaxo Baby Book is published. Mahlon Kline begins sending samples of pharmaceuticals through the mail to physicians. Financier Philip Hill, who plans to diversify the laxative business into a major company, purchases the Beecham estate. Beecham Research Laboratories purchase Brockham Park where scientists later discover penicillin. Glaxo absorbs Allen and Hanburys, the first seed company. Smith, Kline and Beckman merge with Beecham to become SmithKline Beecham. Glaxo and Wellcome merge to become Glaxo Wellcome.
In the year 2000, GlaxoSmithKline is formed through the merger of Glaxo Wellcome and SmithKline Beecham.
