Rentschler Biotechnologie GmbH announced the company has successfully transitioned into a European corporation (SE) with entry into the German commercial register on October 1, 2017. The company is operating as Rentschler Biopharma SE with immediate effect. There will be no operational changes for clients or employees of the family-owned company due to the transition.
“With our transition to Rentschler Biopharma SE, we emphasize our long-term international corporate identity, while the core business remains unaffected. In future, this legal form of company strengthens our position as a full-service CDMO and ensures our place as a leader in this industry,” Prof. Dr. Nikolaus F. Rentschler, Owner of Rentschler Biopharma SE said. “Our proven service offering along the entire value chain – from bioprocess development through biomanufacturing to fill and finish of biopharmaceuticals – remains unchanged. This also applies to our company sites and manufacturing facilities as well as the existing client relations and importantly their contact persons.”
Over the recent years, Rentschler Biopharma has grown considerably and invested constantly in facilities so that capacities have more than doubled. With the expansion of our facilities, a continually growing number of employees has also been added to the company. About 200 employees have been recruited in all business segments during the past year and a half. In the current fiscal year, over 120 additional positions are to be filled.
