Orthomol: A Family Business
Health is a family concern. Orthomol opened its doors in 1991 and was a family project right from the start. Company founder Dr Kristian Glagau, who died in 2009, described Orthomol’s first steps in an interview that year: ‘We literally began in our garage, with the Glagau family as our staff.
‘For us, health is a family concern – that applies just as much to the “Orthomol family” as to our customers.’
Open and transparent communication is naturally important to management and executives. Team spirit, customer orientation and flexibility shape our culture and way of working, for your health and for the sense of family togetherness at Orthomol. The whole family has been involved in the company ever since its beginnings. Managing director and second-generation owner Nils Glagau confirms this: ‘We have always treated it as absolutely natural that every member of the family does their bit for Orthomol.’ The company remains the same even today, shaped by a feeling of family togetherness, flat hierarchies and an open corporate culture. We support the work-life balance of our ‘Orthomolists’ – with our ‘Orthomolinis’ child care centre, the fitness studio, personal trainers, and our monthly ‘Breakfast Club’ for Orthomol employees.
