Dynamic growth, innovative medicinal products and a wealth of experience spanning several generations are trademarks of BERLIN-CHEMIE. In Berlin-Adlershof, our history dates back to the year 1890. Our employees are partly from families who have already been involved in the development, manufacture and marketing of medicinal products for five generations. We maintain a particularly close relationship with our head office in Berlin, to which we are wholeheartedly committed.

At the same time, we are a cosmopolitan company. Altogether, we employ more than 5,000 persons from over 70 nations. Furthermore, vocational training has been a tradition for many decades at BERLIN-CHEMIE and has been awarded multiple times by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. This diversity is one of our greatest strengths.


In Germany, BERLIN-CHEMIE has achieved growth rates in recent years which have exceeded the development of the pharmaceutical market. This growth was fuelled for the most part by the products from the business units diabetes and cardiology. This excellent result confirms the strategy of BERLIN-CHEMIE and MENARINI, which pursues especially the development of innovative medicinal products in Germany. In doing so, we place the greatest value on extensive training and on the quality of work of our scientific sales force. It is thanks to this continuous effort that BERLIN-CHEMIE enjoys an excellent reputation in the healthcare sector, especially with general practitioners and specialists.
