About Us

About Univet

Univet was set up in 1980 by the Crowe family as a pharmaceutical company specialising in the production of veterinary medicinal products. The company brings our medicines to market through extensive R&D activity, internal production, clinical trials and field testing processes. All of our products are produced at our dedicated GMP compliant manufacturing facility in Cavan, Ireland.

Univet employs a large workforce of skilled staff with extensive knowledge of product registration, development and manufacture which has steadily expanded to manage a substantial range of specialised products of exceptional quality, safety and efficacy. Such strong growth is reliant on the continued commitment of our staff and a long term export orientated development strategy.

The company is part of Ireland’s pharmaceutical cluster, which ranks as the world’s fifth largest pharmaceutical exporter and a location for nine of the world’s top ten pharma companies. This vibrant and dynamic environment allows Univet to recruit highly trained and motivated staff into our GMP approved manufacturing facility in Cavan, Ireland.

  • drop-in opportunities hosted by Univet staff at trade exhibitions and large agricultural events which provide agricultural advice;
