40 Years of Innovation and Tradition in Disinfection and Hygiene

For more than 40 years, Dr. Schumacher's products have been based on the idea of highly effective, safe and user-friendly disinfectants. The guiding principle of our company's founder is still valid today: People and their health are at the center of our thoughts and actions.

Following his pioneering spirit, Dr. Henning Schumacher founded Dr. Schumacher GmbH in Melsungen in 1978 and handed over the company to his sons Dierk and Jens at the end of the 1990s, who have continued their father's company philosophy. The research and development of new products has characterized the history and success of our company. The interplay of innovation and tradition is a major influence on the way forward.

With more than 1,600 employees, Dr. Schumacher GmbH is one of Europe's leading manufacturers of disinfection and hygiene products. We develop and produce our own as well as private label/ OEM products in the fields of disinfection, hygiene, cleaning, care and cosmetics. Dr. Schumacher products are used in the medical sector as well as by consumers. In addition to its value-oriented corporate culture, the family-owned company has remained true to its location in northern Hesse.

At its headquarters in Malsfeld-Beiseförth, Dr. Schumacher employs about 400 people. Worldwide, the company is directly represented in eight countries and has a network of distribution partners in 70 countries.
