The F.A.Z. Institute, a subsidiary of the renowned Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, has named us Germany's Innovation Leader 2023.
For more than 75 years, our innovative spirit has been deeply rooted, enabling us to continually break new ground and set new standards. We focus on continuous improvement to find efficient solutions in the field of freeze drying. Our equipment must be able to meet the constant new challenges in the respective fields. We are prepared for new requirements, new regulations and other influences - always up-to-date!
Our customers can rely on the highest level of technology, safety, precision and service.
"Our recipe for success lies in our talented team of visionaries and technology experts who are passionate about innovation. So this award is for our people. We are proud of it," says Managing Director Dr. Frank Harms.
Martin Christ Sr. founded the company 75 years ago. His two sons, Michael and Martin Christ, followed their father into management in the 1970s and successfully led the business units into the future. In recent years, our group of companies has grown continuously. Today, our family business has around 300 employees. With Malte Christ, the third generation of the shareholder family joined the family business in 2015. Since September of this year, he has represented both companies equally as Managing Director, taking over from his father Martin Christ on the Board of Management. Martin Christ continues to be involved in the advisory board.
Celebrating is also a tradition with us. So the anniversary was of course celebrated appropriately. The 75th anniversary celebration took place on our company premises. All employees were invited to a big fair with great food stands, climbing wall, bull riding and many other attractions.
The F.A.Z. Institute - a subsidiary of the renowned "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" newspaper - has named us Germany's innovation leader for the second time.
