In January 2008, the company was acquired by The Perrigo Group for $86m.[2] The company was founded in 1982 by Graham Leslie.[3]

From August 2004 until July 2012, the Huddersfield Town football stadium also home to the Huddersfield Giants Rugby League club (opened in 1994 as the Alfred McAlpine Stadium) has been known as the Galpharm Stadium as part of a sponsorship deal.[4] The stadium has since been renamed John Smith's Stadium following the naming rights being purchased by Heineken.
