The following chart shows the share of our total Group sales accounted for by the individual market segments, divisions and regions.
The origins of our Group go back to the glass factory founded by Ferdinand Heye in 1864 in the Gerresheim suburb of Düsseldorf. Only over the last two decades did we develop into the highly-specialised supplier, primarily to the pharma and healthcare industry, which we are today with the help of targeted acquisitions and intensive development and refinement of know-how and technologies.
Our international business is split into four divisions, to which our individual Group companies are allocated:
As independent organisational units our divisions have worldwide responsibility for development, production and marketing.
We offer our customers a widely diversified range of high-quality glass and plastic products. With an extensive product and materials portfolio, we enjoy a reputation as a complete supplier in this highly specialised market for pharma and healthcare. Our product range comprises medicine vials, ampoules and special bottles as well as complex drug-delivery systems such as prefillable syringes, inhalers and other system solutions for safe dosage and application of medicines. In parallel, we supply numerous product and system approaches in the field of diagnostics and medical technology, including for example finger-prick aids and lancets for diabetes monitoring and components for various analysis systems. There is also a wide spectrum of special products for use in scientific and analytical laboratories.
We see our special strength in customised development and production, including full-service project business. With our combined competence in both glass and plastic from a single source we are able to develop and realise complete system approaches across the boundaries of these two materials to meet our customers' requirements to the letter.
As a general rule, our special pharmaceutical products are an integral component of the drug registration process. We meet the regulatory standards imposed by the relevant supervision authorities and collaborate closely with our customers on registration.
