Expansion of pharma business: Körber strengthens partnership with Franz Ziel GmbH and acquires minority share

The international technology group Körber signed an agreement on a close partnership and the acquisition of a minority share of the Franz Ziel GmbH. Franz Ziel offers pharmaceutical solutions and aseptic process equipment and is leading with its isolator technologies. Together with Franz Ziel’s solutions, Körber will be able to support customers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries even better in meeting the increasing requirements in the future. 

The Körber Group expands its market expertise in the field of cleanroom technology for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. For customers from the Körber Business Area Pharma, Franz Ziel's solutions are a perfect fit with Körber’s inspection and packaging solutions. Customers benefit from complementary solutions in an integrated portfolio of hardware, software and digital solutions.

Franz Ziel's comprehensive process solutions ensure the best possible protection of products, personnel, and manufacturing environments during the production of vital medicines. The innovative systems meet the highest requirements of the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry.

“Franz Ziel’s offering is a great extension of our existing product portfolio and another important milestone on the way to our goal of offering products and solutions for customers from the pharmaceutical and biotech industry along the entire value chain from a single source,” states Erich Hoch, CTO & COO of the Körber Group. “This proves once again that Körber, with its entrepreneurial DNA, is a strong partner for technologically innovative companies.”

“With the partnership and the minority share in Franz Ziel, we are further expanding the product portfolio in a strategic area for the benefit of our customers,” adds Jörn Gossé, CEO of the Körber Business Area Pharma. “We are now in an even better position to support our customers at a significantly earlier stage within their production process when processing their pharmaceutical products.”

“We are very pleased to have Körber as a strong and reliable partner at our side and see our company well prepared for a successful and secure future,” says Olaf Ziel, CEO and owner of Franz Ziel. “The joint further development to a turnkey provider, access to the global sales and service network, the potential in the areas of digitization, Pharma 4.0, software and AI solutions, and last but not least, access to expanded production capacities were convincing arguments for entering into this partnership.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
