History Situated in Saxony-Anhalt, the plant was established in 1990 to create a labelling and packaging, storage, and distribution hub for Octapharma products supplied to the German market.
Starting with 3 employees packing coagulation factor concentrates, the site has been gradually extended, with all Octapharma products for the German market now labelled, packed, released in, and shipped from the plant.
To meet the increasing needs of our worldwide markets it was decided to enlarge the site into a modern, state-of-the-art packaging and logistics centre for worldwide dispatch.
Since October 2009 our plasma products are being labelled, packed, stored and distributed from this centre to more than 80 countries. In 2017 Octapharma in Dessau employs more than 160 people.
