Formation of a holding company
Uhlmann restructures its organization

Laupheim, October 1, 2019
The Uhlmann Group has decided to fundamentally reorganize its group structure in order to be well prepared for future development. A joint holding company has been established to this end. This limited partnership business entity (GmbH & Co. KG) takes on its own legal form as of October 1, 2019.  In addition to strategic management of the company group, the holding company will pool appropriate central functions of the Uhlmann Group.

“In view of steady growth, establishment of the holding company will help to put our company group on a solid footing for the future and promote more effective implementation of our strategic targets for the whole Group”, says Tobias Uhlmann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Uhlmann Group.

Uhlmann Group Holding GmbH & Co. KG is based at the company headquarters in Laupheim. The general conditions for Uhlmann employees are not affected by the new structure. The present company agreements additionally apply to the holding company and existing welfare schemes are available to all Uhlmann employees. The workers’ council in Laupheim is responsible for the employees of Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG and the Uhlmann Group Holding GmbH & Co. KG workforce.

Uhlmann operates in very dynamic markets and has grown strongly over the past years. “We want to further extend our business in the pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical sectors. This requires us to plan ahead and break new paths. Above all, we must adapt our structures to enable us to act more swiftly and with greater agility. We have fulfilled a key requirement for this with the new company structure”, explains Norbert Gruber, Managing Director of Uhlmann Group Holding and CEO of the Executive Board of Uhlmann Pac-Systeme.
