Competence in biofactors

Wörwag Pharma GmbH & Co. KG is a German pharmaceutical company headquartered in Böblingen near Stuttgart with more than 20 international subsidiaries in Asia, Europe and South America. In 2022, the company generated sales of 291 million euros with more than 1,400 employees worldwide.

The company develops, produces and distributes pharmaceuticals for the prevention and treatment of lifestyle diseases. Wörwag Pharma is particularly committed to the clinical use of biofactors – which include vitamins, minerals and trace elements – in the prevention and treatment of primarily age-related diseases, such as diabetes mellitus.

Wörwag Pharma's product range includes products subject to prescription as well as over-the-counter products and nutritional supplements. A large proportion of the pharmacy-exclusive products are used to treat diabetic secondary diseases. Other solutions are effective against disorders of the nervous system (neuropathies), strengthen the immune system or support the maintenance of a healthy musculoskeletal system.

Wörwag Pharma manufactures both its own products and contract pharmaceuticals at the production site at Lódz Special Economic Zone, Poland. The modern building complex covers an area of 9,500 square meters and is equipped with cutting-edge technology for production and development. The recently acquire site is being developed into a center of excellence for oral dosage forms for the Wörwag Pharma group of companies.

The family-owned company, founded in 1971 by Dr. Fritz Wörwag, is managed by Gerhard Mayer and Jochen Schlindwein.

International team

Around 1,400 employees are committed to our corporate success at 22 branches serving a total of 36 countries around the globe.

    A diverse team representing 25 nationalities also works at the Böblingen headquarters. Many of our employees move to the area from their home countries to live and work here. Our corporate language is English.

    The proportion of women in the company is over 70 percent, and around 40 percent hold management positions. The company supports the compatibility of family and career with various models – for example, trust-based working hours and mobile working.

    We have a diversity of people working at Wörwag Pharma, bringing their perspectives from different cultural and professional backgrounds to projects. This diversity creates an enriching working environment, spawning the best possible results for the many, equally diverse markets and customers.

    Nicole Schmolke, Director Human Resources

    “The compatibility of family and career is not an empty promise at Wörwag Pharma. Flexible working hours and mobile working from home allow me, even in my responsible position, to be there for my still young son when he needs me. Of course, this is naturally motivating.”

    – Stefanie, Team Lead Quality 

      Getting closer. Helping better.

      People are the most important factors in our success: On the one hand, our committed employees help shape the development of the company. On the other hand, doctors, pharmacists and experts in clinics and medical practices have promoted our idea of using vitamins and minerals in the therapy of diseases of civilization for many years.

      With highly effective solutions for health maintenance and therapy, we support our customers in preventing or treating lifestyle diseases. To this end, we develop and market biofactor preparations such as vitamins, minerals, and trace elements.

      Our values

      Humanity, proximity, and responsibility stand for our traditional values, based on which we continue to grow together. To this day, one of our great strengths is that we have remained a family business despite all our growth.

      Our actions are always geared to the benefit and satisfaction of our customers. We focus on this goal and take responsibility for it.

      What we do is credible and strong when we keep our promises. We stand by people as a reliable partner - patients, customers, doctors, pharmacists, suppliers, colleagues.

      We enjoy our work and are proud of our products and the company.

      “At Wörwag Pharma, we are responsible and believe in science that can change the life of millions of people. I very much enjoy working in this friendly and cooperative atmosphere, cross-functionally – jointly coming up with new solutions for our patients, getting closer to help better.“

      – Samer, Innovation Manager
