Clear Strategic Focus

We have a defined strategy focused on four main drivers: portfolio focus, geographical expansion, pipeline delivery and targeted acquisition.

Development Pipeline

We have a strong pipeline of novel pharmaceuticals, generic pharmaceuticals and specialist pet diets and a track record of pipeline delivery. We are proactive in recognising and bringing new development opportunities into the portfolio.

Entrepreneurial and Innovative

Dechra encourages an entrepreneurial and innovative approach from its management team which is underpinned by appropriate internal controls and robust systems and procedures.

Manufacturing Flexibility 

Our manufacturing sites offer a wide range of dosage forms and packaging capabilities which can be produced in small to large-scale production batches. This flexibility is a key requirement in producing our varied product portfolio.

Growing Animal Health Market

The global animal health market continues to demonstrate growth. This is driven in developed countries by increased medical and surgical capabilities for companion animals. In developing countries the increased demand for high quality meat protein drives the FAP market.

Focused Portfolio

We have a clear portfolio focus and hold strong market positions in a number of our key therapeutic sectors such as endocrinology, dermatology, anaesthesia and analgesics, and equine medicine.

Recognised Brand

Dechra is recognised today as a global animal healthcare company with a strong and growing reputation as a provider of high quality, specialist veterinary medicines and related products.

Expanding International Focus

In line with our strategy we are focused on extending the Dechra brand into new countries. We are also increasing distribution of our products on a global basis with selected partners, currently into over 40 countries.

People and Expertise

We have attracted and retained a qualified and skilled workforce throughout the organisation. This stable and motivated team has many years' experience within the markets we serve. Our people strategy is underpinned by the Dechra Values.

Strong Balance Sheet

The Group maintains a prudent management of its balance sheet and achieves strong cash flows. This position provides flexibility to invest in drivers for long term growth.
