Schering GmbH und Co. Produktions KG – which is a 100 per cent subsidiary of the Bayer Schering Pharma AG in Berlin – is a pharmaceutical company of the Bayer Group based in Weimar.
The company manufactures hormone-containing solid medication dosage forms (pills, dragees and coated tablets) for the national and international markets of Bayer Schering Pharma AG. Packaging occurs in the form of blister packages and bottles. Innovative and especially patient-friendly packaging is also applied.
The plant in Weimar, which was established in 1994, is simultaneously the headquarters and location for production, quality control and packaging. The logistics centre has also been established here. It incorporates purchasing, production planning, the supply of all materials, storage in a fully-automatic high bay warehouse (8,000 pallet storage space) and the distribution and dispatch of all products. Consequent investment in a modern, computer-based integrated system for factory management and production planning allows for the optimal control of all operating processes. This affords the enterprise great flexibility for responding to customer preferences along with cost competitiveness and outstanding quality.
