Atabay was founded in Istanbul by Mr. Ö. Kemalettin Atabay, Pharmacist, in 1939, prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. The company had emerged as a trading business, importing and marketing pharmaceutical products. In the 1940’s, this medium sized commercial operation developed into the production of sulfonamide tablets. By 1954, Atabay Pharmaceutical Products Inc. had evolved into a well equipped modern plant. Consequently, in 1967, this facility was established at its present site in Acıbadem, Istanbul. In 1970, the site of Atabay Pharmaceutical Fine Chemicals Inc was chosen at Gebze, near Istanbul.
After successful years of performance in pharmaceuticals, Mr. Bülent Atabay, Chemical Engineer and President, prompted back - integration and entered in to the manufacture of fine chemicals.
