75 years Medinova
It always starts with an idea, a dream – or even a necessity – to break new ground in order to better cover market and customer needs. The exact plans and ideas with which Dr. Fritz Müller and his colleagues started Medinova AG in February 1945 escape me.
What is clear, however, is that patients and partners are still very much the lifeblood of the endeavor. This focus remains as topical today as ever and our small team is well aware of its responsibility and calling.
75 years is indeed an advanced age and normally one at which us humans would take off to enjoy our retirements and “slow down the pace”. Not at Medinova! After 75 years, our company celebrates splendid health and abundant vigor.
Our therapeutic focus is on the segments of “women’s health” and “therapeutic skin care”. In Switzerland, we also cover niches in the areas of vein care, sleep and sports injuries.
From the beginning, Medinova’s calling has followed the tune “from science to the market”. With our products the focus is on efficacy and safety. Our evidence based approach can be seen in the more than 20 studies and over 15 publications on efficacy and safety during the last 10 years, for example, in the area of women’s health. This is one of the success factors which, among other things, has enabled us to market our products in more than 65 markets together with our partners.
In Switzerland and internationally, several of our products occupy leading positions for the corresponding indications and categories.
Quality is of utmost importance: The successful conversion to ISO 13485, as well as various accreditations gained through our partners and their respective authorities are important milestones to prepare us for the future.
In 2019, in cooperation with Waters & Amazon, we implemented and validated our Empower 3 AWS Cloud as the first pharmaceutical company to do so.
We manage all this with a team of only 40 individuals, doing their very best every day with enthusiasm and dedication. Both in our domestic market in Switzerland, as well as in an international context, we fulfill all the prerequisites for long-standing cooperation and partnership that live really up to their promise. Competence, trust and longevity, as well as personal relationships are values close to our hearts.
Some partners and team members have been with us for several decades and are part of Medinova’s success story.
It is a source of pleasure every day to collaborate on new developments with this Swiss SME marked by tradition, proven success and a wonderful team.
