Bad Vilbel, July 1, 2020 - STADA Consumer Health Deutschland GmbH is the new name of the former STADA GmbH. STADA is thus sharpening its profile within the German market and making it clear at first glance what the company stands for: Strong branded products such as Grippostad®, Ladival® and Hoggar® with a clear focus on consumers and pharmacists. STADA CEO Peter Goldschmidt: "Our success is based on diversity. With our broad portfolio, we are based on two pillars consisting of generics and non-prescription consumer healthcare products. Local, country-specific brands are the key to success in our consumer healthcare business."
The second pillar in the German market is formed by ALIUD PHARMA, which focuses on generics and discount agreements, and STADAPHARM as an expert for special pharmaceuticals such as biosimilars and cytostatics. The managing directors of the three companies report to Eelco Ockers. As Executive Vice President Germany, he is responsible for the German business and is part of the worldwide STADA Executive Committee under the leadership of Peter Goldschmidt. "From now on, we will carry in our name what makes us strong: The focus on our well-known brands with the clear purpose in mind to care for people's health as a trusted partner. We are looking forward to the new chapter and will continue to work hard to provide excellent service to our customers, even under the changed banner", says Eelco Ockers.
STADA Consumer Health Deutschland GmbH regularly expands its product range with innovations in order to meet people's needs even better. Lemocin® and Cetebe® are among the most recent new additions to the portfolio, which the company acquired from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Just in time for the current summer season, two new skincare face products from Ladival®, Germany's best-selling sunscreen in pharmacies, have been launched.
