Our unique commitment 

Pain is a huge burden. It impacts patients – as well as their families, friends, caregivers and society as a whole. As a global leader in pain management for nearly 50 years, we’re driven to seek new solutions to relieve pain.

Social Responsibility

Caring for the world around us is a big part of who we are – from a patient’s pain to climate change – we’re committed to doing what we can to tackle these issues, big and small

Global Capabilities

Although firmly rooted in Germany, today we’re very much a growing global business: since spreading our wings beyond Germany in the 1960’s, we have continued to grow steadily.

Pipeline

In our quest to improve the lives of even more patients in need we enrich our expertise in pain management with a complementary diversification into devices and technologies
