Rhône-Poulenc was a French chemical and pharmaceutical company founded in 1928 through the merger of Société Chimique des Usines du Rhône and Établissements Poulenc Frères. In January 1999, Rhône-Poulenc merged with Hoechst AG to form Aventis. In 2004, Aventis went on to merge with Sanofi-Synthélabo forming Sanofi-Aventis, the third largest pharmaceutical company in the world.
