Uhlmann as a German global market leader


This year, the business magazine WirtschaftsWoche has again identified Uhlmann as a German global market leader. As a leading global systems supplier for the packaging of pharmaceutical products is Uhlmann listed in the special publication “Germany’s Global Market Leaders 2020" (in German). “We are extremely pleased about this recognition. It reflects Uhlmann’s economic success and the internationality of our business operations”, says Norbert Gruber, Chairman of the Uhlmann Executive Board. Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG attained sales of EUR 329 million in 2018 with an export quota of over 80 percent. The magazine WirtschaftsWoche lists 450 companies as global market leaders, including well-known names such as Boehringer Ingelheim, Bayer, BASF, and Merck.

The list of global market leaders is drawn up by the University of St. Gallen each year. In order to qualify as a global market leader, a company must be the number one or number two in its market sector. Fifty percent of the annual turnover – at least EUR 50 million – must be generated abroad and on at least three continents. The owners must at least partly be based in Germany. The evaluation follows the strict criteria that have meanwhile become established after various court disputes.
