The global historical archives of Roche Group Holdings (based in Basel, Switzerland) contain documents, printed matter, photographs, films, architectural plans and artefacts (e.g. machinery, pharmaceuticals, laboratory equipment, anatomical preparations etc) dating back to the company’s foundation in 1896. Roche set up its first daughter company in Britain in 1908 and since then has been present in the UK with sales offices, research facilities and production plants. The heritage of Roche’s affiliates in the UK is safeguarded centrally in Basel. Apart from a wealth of documents the collection includes photographs and films by noted British photographers and filmmakers as well as building plans of the former Roche facilities in Welwyn Garden City (Herts.).
