The Grünenthal Group: International, successful, innovative

We understand that success can only be achieved through close collaborations with those who share the same vision: to develop innovative medicines for patients with diseases with high unmet needs. We build networks where every party contributes with its expertise and experience – for the mutual benefit and for the benefit of the patients.

As a privately owned, mid-sized pharma company, with strong R&D and commercial capabilities, we are well positioned as a partner to bring projects successfully to market. In addition to being a leader in the market for centrally acting analgesics* and having a track record of bringing innovative therapies to patients, we are highly committed to innovation. On average, Grünenthal invests 19% of its revenues into R&D.

The Grünenthal Group is an independent, family-owned, international research-based pharmaceutical company headquartered in Aachen, Germany and present in 32 countries with around 5,500 colleagues working at affiliates in Europe, Latin America and the US. Grünenthal products are sold in more than 155 countries, and in 2016, Grünenthal achieved revenues of € 1.4 bn.
