VIP visit for anniversary of Greiner Bio-One

Frickenhausen, 27 June 2018 – Winfried Kretschmann, Minister President of Baden-Württemberg, visited Greiner Bio-One GmbH in Frickenhausen on Wednesday. He was given an extensive tour by Managing Director Heinz Schmid that included the new high-bay warehouse, which was taken into operation in April 2018 following a construction period of just one year and is part of a major infrastructure project by the company. “I was very impressed by the new high-bay warehouse and cutting-edge production facilities. Greiner is an excellent example of a family business from Baden-Württemberg that has achieved global success by harnessing its innovative prowess and focusing on its customers. The investments represent a vital commitment to the site, ensuring that quality products can continue to be manufactured here competitively in the future,” said the Minister President.

The Greiner Group, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this June, dates back to a small general store founded by Carl Albert Greiner and his wife Emilie in Nürtingen in 1868. It is now a globally successful family business that has over 10,000 employees in 34 countries and its holding company is based in Kremsmünster, Austria. Some 330 employees work at the German site in Frickenhausen, making it an important employer in the Esslingen district.
