"In 1999, we got the critical mass and the feeling within the company was that we had arrived. We were close to the Rs 1,000-crore mark in turnover, which called for a new way of looking at things and taking the message to the stakeholders."

- Satish Reddy Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories.

"The new identity highlights the company's ethos - a caring organization that leverages its expertise in research for a healthier life."

- Dr. K. Anji Reddy, Chairman, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories.


On April 26, 2001, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories (DRL) unveiled its new corporate identity and philosophy, reinforcing its commitment to bring hope to life through meaningful research. (Refer Exhibit I) It unveiled a new logo, new colors, (Refer Exhibit II) a code of conduct for employees, a Dr. Reddy's anthem and the new base line - Life, Research, Hope.

DRL had changed its corporate identity for the second time in less than a decade.1 This was despite the fact that DRL already had a well-defined, widely recognized identity. Analysts felt that the change in corporate identity was necessary as DRL was targeting the global market.

DRL officials felt that the company needed a corporate image that was more in tune with its international profile. The new corporate identity was forged from the merger of DRL, Cheminor Drugs Ltd. (CDL)2 and American Remedies Ltd. (ARL)3 into a homogenous unit in 2000 and DRL's subsequent listing on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 2001.
