“CR Bard History
2007 marked a major milestone in C. R. Bard Inc.’s history…100 years of quality, integrity, service, and innovation. Charles Russell Bard began the company with the goal of introducing a product to the public that had relieved urinary discomfort. That blend of curiosity and salesmanship has been behind every major development in BARD’s history, from the Foley catheter to the angioplasty balloon to the high-tech cancer treatments the company markets today.
We’ve accomplished much throughout our history, and are equally committed to the future. As we continue to bring innovative, life-enhancing products to patients throughout the world, we expect our second century to be as noteworthy as our first.
“We live in a very different world from the one that existed at the turn of the 20th century. But over the years, BARD has never changed its commitment to creating innovative, potentially life-saving products that improve the quality of life for patients worldwide.
We are proud of our history, our heritage, and the BARD people who have come before us. This spirit lives within all of us today. Our values and the employees who keep these values alive each day are the cornerstones of our success—it is our spirit; it is our future.”
