Boehringer Ingelheim has its headquarters in Germany and its product range includes Pharmaton Vitamins, Bisolvon cough syrup and Buscopan abdominal pain remedy.
Previously it used a series of digital and media agencies but decided in August to review its marketing servives providers.
In the UK the company is to launch a product for premenopausal women, which is being handled by Delaney Lund Knox Warren and Pan Advertising.
Boehringer Ingelheim is structured into two main business areas: human pharmaceuticals and animal health.
The company faces challenges in advertising its non-consumer products due to global regualtions on promoting prescription drugs to the public and faces challenges from competitor companies including Johson & Johnson and Bayer.
