For nearly 200 years Klosterfrau Healthcare Group has been developing, manufacturing and selling pharmaceutical products. Today, our company offers an attractive portfolio of over 30 brands and nearly 200 products in Germany. Initially established in Austria and Central Europe, the Klosterfrau export sales network now also includes Central Eastern and Western Europe as well as countries in North America, Africa and Asia. Our portfolio ranges from well-known and established brands, such as Melissengeist® / Melisana®, neo-angin® and nasic®, to products for very specific indications. Klosterfrau relies above all on the healing power of nature, for this is what our company is based on. Klosterfrau continuously develops and improves its products as well as customises the product line to new trends, research results or changing social landscapes. Klosterfrau also conducts research to bring entirely new brands and products onto the market in order to make use of its potentials.
Our company maintains and extends a worldwide distribution network for distribution.
"The brand portfolio of Klosterfrau combines tradition with modernity."
The demand for pharmaceutical and health products has experienced a boom, not only in recent years – it has been consistently rising since the 1960s. As our main factory in Cologne could no longer meet the steadily increasing demand, a second plant was built in Berlin in 1971. Many of our products are manufactured here in state-of-the-art production lines located in an area of 45,000 square metres. From Berlin, these products are then distributed to our customers in Germany, throughout Europe and beyond.
To date, the Klosterfrau Healthcare Group has grown to approximately 1,700 employees. We are a modern company with a unique history, continuously promoting growth through innovation.
People's trust in Klosterfrau products and the enthusiasm of its employees give the company a unique liveliness which promises ongoing positive development to meet future challenges. Scientific expertise, innovation, products that meet the highest quality standards as well as co-operations with renowned partners result in a product range structure that stands out in many areas by its market leadership in individual segments.
