About Us

The best blend of innovation and tradition


For 75 years we have been a reliable full-service partner for the pharmaceutical industry on the German and international markets. And we have been growing ever since. We always strive for innovation throughout all divisions. This is a major part of ARTESAN and its corporate culture. 

We never accept nonsatisfying solutions and specialize on delivering only the best for our customers. Throughout this process we focus on a high degree of quality as well as a close and individual communication with our customers.

We are constantly improving. For us, this includes continuous innovation and investment in the newest manufacturing and packaging technologies, which of course benefits our customers. This also makes working at ARTESAN very exciting. We are an organization with flat hierarchies and a modern and open communication. We truly value the people behind ARTESAN, and do everything we can to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for our employees and our customers.
