About our name

Ironwood has always taken the long view: we hope to grow substantial value and, one step at a time, earn the right to build an enduring pharmaceutical company that helps people lead better lives. So we named ourselves after the ironwood tree, which can live for thousands of years in the harshest desert, creating a shaded microclimate in which life thrives. We also like that the word “ironwood” is both hard and soft. Iron like science, is undeniable and strong. Wood, like artistry and humanity, is flexible, adaptive and versatile. The two words together represent our passion for the art and science of making medicines.
