The Frankfurt Hirsch Pharmacy, founded in 1462, came into the possession of the Fresenius family in the 18th century. The pharmacist Eduard Fresenius founded the pharmaceutical company Dr. E. Fresenius in 1912. This developed into today’s health care group. The Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA forms the organizational umbrella of the group, which is active in various health care areas. The group companies together employ about 294,000 people.
