Merck invests EUR 7.6 million

Two billion tablets

“This comprises the largest single investment in the history of Merck Spittal“, says Klaus Raunegger, Managing Director of Merck in Spittal. The site has long become a showcase plant within the Merck Group of Germany. Four of the company’s eight most important brands on the global market are manufactured in Carinthia. “Over the last ten years the number of packs of medicine produced here has increased five-fold, from 14 million to 70 million. The volume of tablets manufactured in Spittal has climbed from 400 million to 1.3 billion”, Raunegger explains.  More than 90 percent of the medication is destined for export. In 2018, the “competence center” in Spittal is expected to manufacture about two billion tablets annually. The plant produces, amongst other products, various over the counter vitamin products and food supplements, nose sprays (Nasivin) and pain relief creams. The production of “Vigantoletten” (Vitamin D) is being transferred from Darmstadt to Spittal within the context of the expansion program.  Quality control also takes place at the Carinthian facility. Production volume has risen four-fold overall during the last ten years.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
