Egerkingen, Switzerland – October, 2013
Thanks to the acquisition of Spirig, Galderma is now the leading dermatology company in Switzerland.  

This was celebrated in an inauguration of Galderma’s Self-medication Centre of Excellence at Egerkingen in Switzerland on October 31st, 2013. This official inauguration was the perfect occasion to seal the bond between the two companies. Considering the high awareness of the Spirig brand, Galderma`s Swiss market operation now goes under the name of Galderma Spirig and a new logo was created accordingly.
The ceremony took place in the presence of Humberto C. Antunes, Marc Wannhoff, General Manager for Austria and Switzerland, Dr. Christian Plugshaupt, one of the former joint owners of Spirig Pharma AG, as well as representatives from the medical community, business partners and customers.

Humberto C. Antunes unveiled the new Galderma Spirig logo with local governor, Esther Gassler.  The logo’s impressive size - 8 x 3.40 metres means it can be seen from quite a distance and it has already become quite a landmark in the Egerkingen area.  

The event was also covered by the local and national press, who were able to discover more about Galderma Spirig and our products. Following the inauguration, several articles were published in the Swiss press and interviews with Marc Wannhoff and Dr. Beat Sägesser, Egerkingen Plant manager, were broadcast on Swiss radio.

The enthusiasm of the teams was obvious throughout the event and this positive energy will be our driving force as we go forward together and forge the future of the company.
