Mylan was founded in 1961 in White Sulphur Springs. In 1965, the company relocated to Morgantown, where its operations in the state remain based. As one of the Mountain State’s largest employers, Morgantown is home to a manufacturing facility that produces tablets and capsules treating a range of conditions. A worldclass research and development center, and numerous administrative and business support functions also call Morgantown home. Mylan has long been a proud corporate citizen in West Virginia and remains so today.

Community Impact

Never forgetting its roots, Mylan – in partnership with SBP – launched Homes for West Virginia to help rebuild homes, restore lives and rejuvenate communities devastated by the 2016 West Virginia flooding.

Mylan's School
Access Program - WV

Over the past six years, Mylan has provided 7,000 free epinephrine auto-injectors to 525 schools in West Virginia, ~58% of the state’s schools.

Several years ago, we recognized that epinephrine auto-injectors needed to be as accessible as defibrillators are in public spaces. So Mylan advocated for legislation to permit “undesignated” epinephrine auto-injectors in schools – meaning a prescription could be in a school’s name rather than in a child’s name and any individual experiencing an anaphylactic emergency would have access to the epinephrine auto-injectors. Today, 48 states have adopted such laws, and Mylan has donated nearly 1 million epinephrine auto-injectors to more than 73,000 schools around the country through the school access program.

Since the program began, epinephrine auto-injectors provided through the program have been used at least 4 times in West Virginia in the school setting.
