Exit: 2016, Equita Holding
Windstar Medical is a leading provider of non-prescription health-care products (OTC) in Germany. Windstar develops private label products in close cooperation with customers in the drugstore, discount and retail segments. In addition, the group offers its own brands such as SOS, Well&Slim and Green Doc. Its key areas of expertise are scientific marketing, product development, quality management and regulatory affairs, market research, customer service, design development, procurement and sales. With this full-service approach, the company is unique in Germany: through its innovation skills, competence in the new product development, and the ability to redesign products originally offered in the prescription drug market (i.e. in pharmacies) to make them freely available at reasonable prices in the OTC-mass-market.
The group currently has a workforce of about 100 employees at its locations in Wehrheim im Taunus (headquarters), Bielefeld and Würzburg. More than 300 different articles from the Windstar Medical Group are on the health-care shelves of German drugstores, supermarkets and discount chains.
