The global health care group that's right by your side

Although we are a global health care group, we are not known for being known. And that's why we get mixed up with others all the time. Yes, we're called Fresenius, but no, we don't test chocolate-nut spread. We contribute to medical progress around the globe.

Our work, our purpose, our drive?

Continuously improving and providing cutting-edge medicine to more and more people around the world. We do not follow trends, we set standards: affordable good-quality medicine to improve the lives of ill people.

And for this mammoth task, we need strong teams — our employees have the necessary potential. Everyone brings their own unique qualities, talent, knowledge and experience to the table, whether in direct contact with patients or behind the scenes in production, research or IT. We never settle for second-best, and always go that one step further to find an even better solution. If this is your aspiration as well, join us. We are looking for people who question the status quo, take the initiative and dare to do something new.

By choosing a career with us, you're choosing a path that gives you a purpose.

We do not test chocolate-nut spread or mineral water.

These products are related to the Fresenius Institute. The similarity in name has historical origins: In the 18th century, the Fresenius family split into a "pharmacy line" and a "chemical line." The current health care group Fresenius was created from the pharmacy line, and the Fresenius Institute in Taunusstein from the chemical line.

Historical Fresenius logos
We work under the sign of the stag.

The Fresenius logo is a stylized stag antler. The association with this animal stems from the Hirsch Pharmacy in Frankfurt am Main, which has belonged to the Fresenius family since the 19th century. In 1939, the resulting pharmaceutical manufacturing company secured its first registered logo: a stag antler. To this day, the stag remains incorporated in the Fresenius logo.

We have been a double DAX company for more than ten years.

After Fresenius Medical Care was included in the German stock exchange in 1999, the Group holding Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA was added in 2009. Since then, we have been listed twice on the DAX and are therefore among the largest listed German companies to date. Moreover, Fresenius is the largest employer in the German health care sector.
