Our purpose

We ensure global availability of sensitive products to improve quality of life for generations.

Our solutions ensure the integrity and safety of the packaged good. With this we build the foundation to transport sensitive products to people worldwide.

We are experts for all products that require specific protection against external influence like temperature, moisture as well as unwanted usage, counterfeit or contamination.

We want to improve the quality of life – today and for generations to come. Thus, we think in decades and are committed to corporate social responsibility, pursuing a comprehensive sustainability strategy with a special focus on climate protection.

Our vision

We will be the leading partner for sustainable packaging solutions driving the transformation of the pharma value chain.

We are committed to sustainability and think about it holistically. Starting with sustainable packaging materials, sustainable packaging concepts and designs, and an energy-efficient packaging process, we set standards and thus make a significant contribution to a sustainable world.

We are experts across the entire value chain of packaging sensitive products. From product and packaging design over system conception to data integration and production control. The packaging of pharmaceutical products is and remains our core business.

The packing ecosystem changes rapidly. Overarching trends such as digitalization, globalization and sustainability disrupt established processes, routines and business models and have an impact on the entire packaging value chain. We want to play an active part in this transformation. Being progressive, innovative and open to new ideas, we want to contribute to shaping the packaging ecosystem of tomorrow and move forward as pioneers.

Our mission

Our solutions provide maximum pharmaceutical safety at the highest process efficiency.

We think holistically in terms of solutions – not only machines. From the planning of the packaging to the operation of the plant we advise our customers and deliver end-to-end solutions along the complete lifecycle. This covers the machine, digital solutions, service, maintenance and optimization measures.

Our customers' pharmaceutical processes require the highest standards and regulations to protect sensitive products. Therefore, our customers depend on flawless, reliable, and certified solutions including a quality-assured documentation and validation. We take this obligation very seriously in our daily activities and comply with it.

We strive to maximize our customers’ output while minimizing their production downtime. Our solutions ensure a stable, reliable and efficient production process with a high output rate.

Our history

In 1948, company founder Josef Uhlmann starts to produce precision molds for the production of suppositories. In doing so, he lays the foundation for development of the company in the field of pharmaceutical packaging.

His son Friedrich joins the company in 1963 and progressively forms a machine construction company of international repute out of his father's trade workshop. After the death of her husband in 1994, Hedwig Uhlmann takes the helm as Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board. Under her management reliability and innovation continue to shape the company as it systematically builds on its global success.

Tobias Uhlmann – son of Friedrich and Hedwig Uhlmann – becomes Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Uhlmann Group in 2007. He continues to manage the family-owned company in the third generation. His objective is to strengthen Uhlmann's market leadership and ensure sustainable, long-term development.
