After Dr Kristian Glagau launches Orthomol pharmazeutische Vertriebs GmbH with Dr Hans Dietl, the newly founded company moves into 140 m² of office space in Poststraße, Langenfeld. In the beginning there are just two people on the Orthomol team. The first products are Orthomol Immun, Orthomol Vital f, Orthomol Vital m and Orthomol Cor.
Specially developed machinery is used for packing the Orthomol products. In the following years Orthomol expands in Langenfeld and opens its second site here – state-of-the-art technical equipment and good quality management are priorities right from the start. By 2001, the company has welcomed its 100th employee!
