Around the globe, employees at Euromed’s seven administrative offices and three production facilities will reflect on the corporate contributions of phytomedicine researchers and chemical engineers that came before them and mark the golden anniversary of the firm.
Euromed is recognizing the longstanding business support of leading manufacturers in 50 countries as it celebrates its 50 th anniversary. These companies rely on Euromed to provide new botanical medicinal discoveries to address health concerns and support wellbeing. The company experienced record growth in 2020 responding to heightened consumer demand in their desire to prioritize health against an unprecedented global threat. Euromed S.A. is a GMP certified manufacturer of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) of botanical origin and has been fully operational since the pandemic outbreak in March 2020.
The firm has botanical medicine roots that trace back more than 100 years. The business arose from the early founding of Dr. Madaus & Company by three brothers Dr. Gerhard Madaus, M.D., Friedemund and Hans Madaus in 1919. They launched the company with the vision to develop pharmaceutical products based on traditional natural science with modern methods of research and to fulfill their belief in the efficacy and safety of naturally derived medicinal products for patients in Germany and beyond.
Euromed was inaugurated in 1971 for the purpose of supplying medicinal botanical extracts to the Madaus Company and later to other leading European pharmaceutical firms. In 2019, Euromed was acquired by one of the leading German pharmaceutical firms, The Dermapharm Group.
“Our 50 th anniversary celebrates our expansion into servicing health-oriented consumers on six continents” said Javier Roig, Chief Executive Office for Euromed S.A. “Leading pharmaceutical, food and dietary supplement firms are reliant on Euromed’s standardized extract to maximize the biological efficacy of their formulations.”
Euromed will recognize the contribution of its current and former employees and valued customers at an anniversary celebration at its Mollet Del Vallès, Barcelona, Spain headquarters in September 2021, if pandemic travel restrictions are liberated by that time. Regional Catalonia Spanish government representatives are expected to be in attendance.
