Positive development in Russia and Eastern Europe: Wörwag Pharma increases its sales in 2017

With an increase in sales of 28 million Euros (16.2%) as compared to the previous year to 201.3 million Euros, Wörwag Pharma, the family-owned company from Böblingen, brought 2017 to a successful end.

The countries with the strongest sales were Germany and Russia. Here the general economic recovery in the country and the reorientation of Russian business made a positive difference. Sales were also able to be increased in Eastern Europe, particularly in Romania and Hungary, as well as in Ukraine.

The company, which has 900 employees worldwide and specializes in so-called biofactors, that is, vitamins, minerals and trace elements, recorded particular growth in its products Milgamma, Thiogamma, Magnerot and B12 Ankermann.

Dr. Marcus Wörwag, Chairman of the Board: "We are pleased that 2017 was a record year in our history, with sales of over 200 million Euros for the first time. We were able to reach our objective of profitable growth in our core markets. This year, we will open up new markets in Asia and Latin America on a targeted basis, for example, in Thailand together with sales partners on site.”
