This year Orthomol is celebrating its silver anniversary – our company is now 25 years old! We look back with pride at the past quarter of a century, and with a sense of anticipation for the future.
The family business Orthomol was launched in 1991 as exactly that – a family. In 2009 the company’s founder Dr Kristian Glagau described Orthomol’s first steps in an interview: “We literally began in our garage with the Glagau family as our staff.” Since then we have experienced considerable growth: the “Orthomol family” now consists of more than 400 employees. Managing director and son of the company founder, Nils Glagau, observes: “The ‘Orthomolists’ nurture our ideas every day in line with our claim: We value your health.”
Highest quality for good health
Right from the outset, Orthomol prioritised the highest quality. The year 2006 witnessed an important milestone: as the first company in our segment, we decided to be certified voluntarily according to ISO 22.000, the highest standard for food safety. It is absolutely natural for us that all stages of production, from the raw materials to the blue packets found at pharmacists, are checked regularly by the German Technical Control Board, TÜV Rheinland.
In 2016 we will be offering you more than 20 specifically dosed micronutrient combinations for various areas of use – from osteoarthritis to the menopause. Nils Glagau is therefore pleased to report: “Just as it did 25 years ago, Orthomol stands for high-grade micronutrient combinations with practical forms of administration and certified quality.” And he promises: “We will also continue to develop new products in the future with our know-how, commitment and passion. And as always, we will base our work on the latest findings from the world of nutritional medicine – but on the feedback from our customers as well.”
