Our history


was incorporated on the 24th September 1965 by the Late Mr. Samuel Benson Adjapong; a Ghanaian entrepreneur and the first Ghanaian Chief Pharmacist at the Ministry of Health. From humble beginnings at Kokomlemle, with a staff strength of only 10, it moved to its current location on the Abeka Road, Tesano in Accra in 1969.

Over the years, despite the adverse economic conditions, Ayrton has kept alive the hope of becoming a force in the pharmaceutical industry in Ghana with about 30 product lines. AYRTON adapted quickly to the dynamics of the local business environment and with careful planning, managed to substantially upgrade its plant, machinery and product lines to its present status.

In February 2010, Adcock Ingram, a giant in the South African Pharmaceutical Industry, who has been in existence for more than 120 years acquired 65.59% shares in Ayrton Drug to become the major shareholder. Today, Adcock Ingram holds over 78% of total Ayrton Drug shares.
