Ravensburg, Germany, February 14, 2011 / b3c newswire / – Dirk Niebel, Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, stopped today at Vetter’s Ravensburg Vetter South facility during a regional tour. Vetter is an independent international specialist in the aseptic filling of drug-delivery systems. "Innovative, mid-sized companies like Vetter are not only an important engine of the German economy," said Niebel, “but as successful international players, they make a noteworthy contribution to the development of the global pharmaceutical market."

 

Vetter, whose staff numbers 2,300 in Europe and the United States, works with the world´s leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies. The service provider fills syringes, cartridges and vials with innovative drugs that treat a range of diseases, including cancer, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

In 2007, the year it began operations, the production site received the “Facility of the Year Award” for process innovation and the “European Outsourcing Award” as most improved process/plant/facility.

"We are pleased to receive a high-level visit from Germany´s capital," said Udo J. Vetter, partner and chairman of the company’s advisory board. "We have grown steadily since our founding and are among the leading providers in our segment. A visit by Federal Minister Niebel underscores that a family-run mid-sized company can be a successful global player."
