Four Decades of Hemofarm’s Šabac-based Plant Seeliger

Hemofarm’s Šabac-based Plant, an important chain in the system of this largest regional pharmaceutical leader, has celebrated four decades of successful business operations.

Found back in 1976, over the course of 40 years of its existence, this factory has passed a dynamic and interesting development path.

From a modest plant for the production of syrups, creams and 5 types of infusion solutions, it first became a part of Vršac-based Hemofarm, and then also a part of German STADA Group, which enabled its access to international markets in 38 countries worldwide, as well as market distinctiveness.  


Hemofarm has also marked a decade of business operations within STADA Group this year, and it has also been a STADA’s hub for Southeast European markets as of this year. The path of Hemofarm to becoming a national business symbol has also been paved by the orientation of the top management to invest in employees to the same extent as in production.

‘I am heading a company that has more than 2700 people and it is not just an empty phrase when I say that all of us together are a part of a large family. Everyone in this family knows their responsibilities and each one of us aspires to the same goal – to produce quality and affordable medicines and to keep the position of one of the major global generic manufacturers under the auspices of STADA’, Ronald Seeliger, CEO of Hemofarm and Vice President of STADA, said.

Over the course of 40 years of its business operations in Šabac, Hemofarm has become not only a partner to the local community but also its inseparable part. Hemofarm has proven that it abides by corporate social responsibility and the principles of sustainable development, among other things, by several million worth investments in the wastewater treatment facility or by investing into forest-planting of Šabac, in which segment it exercises exceptional cooperation with local self-government.

‘Apart from being one of the business pillars of the town and a symbol of stability, Hemofarm’s Šabac-based Plant is also a good neighbour, partner and member of the local community. We have jointly initiated numerous projects, and I’m looking forward to good cooperation also in the years ahead. The town Šabac is capable of responding to all requirements of businessmen, and it is, therefore, the best place for investing in Serbia’, Mayor of Šabac Nebojša Zelenović pointed out in his felicitation speech on the occasion of the anniversary.
