About ALCON INC

Alcon incorporated and with corporate headquarters, in Hunenberg, Switzerland, is a global medical company specializing in eye care products. Alcon's U.S. headquarters is located in Fort Worth, Texas. Alcon has been purchased by Novartis from Nestle and there have been confirmed information indicating high likelihood that Alcon will soon also be merged with the new parent company. Alcon was founded in 1945 in Fort Worth, Texas, USA. The company started as a small pharmacy in Fort Worth and was named for its founders, pharmacists Robert Alexander and William Conner. Conner and Alexander focused on sterile ophthalmic products, which no other company specialized in at the time and built their business by researching eye care products that would reduce contamination and increase safety. Nestle of Switzerland purchased Alcon in 1977. This was during a time of rapid growth for Nestle and was their first venture into the pharmaceutical industry.
