History Tradition and Innovation

From pharmacy to global player

Good ideas, ground-breaking innovations and entrepreneurial responsibility: that sums up the history of B. Braun. It all began in 1839, when Julius Wilhelm Braun bought the Rose Pharmacy in Melsungen. 

The challenges have changed since the early 19th century. But then, and now, our goals are: create innovations in medical therapies and recognize what is important during exchanges with customers and partners. In six generations, the enterprise has developed into a global company with subsidiaries on every continent.
