The AMINO GmbH has never stood still. Starting in 1958 as a seemingly barely profitable ancillary business of the liquid sugar production, AMINO developed into a major European supplier for the pharmaceutical and medical sector over the following 60 years. The history of AMINO shows impressively what has happened in recent years and highlights which changes have been made over and over again to become even more innovative and successful.
Foundation of AMixCo Premix GmbH and entry into the market of amino acid mixtures. Under the new brand, individually requested amino acid premixes of the highest quality and reliability are produced for the use in pharmaceutical and dietary products.
AMINO receives various awards, including "Gold" from EcoVadis in the sustainability audit, the seal of quality "Innovative through research" and the "Entrepreneur Award of the Region 38".
AMINO GmbH is comprehensively restructured as part of a management buy-out. This creates opportunities for the further development of the company into a globally active supplier of high-quality amino acids and comparable active ingredients. In order to offer a wide range of products on the world market, AMINO promotes the use of the best possible technologies such as extraction and purification or biotechnological fermentative processes.
AMINO is founded. The purpose of the company is to extract amino acids and other additives from renewable raw materials. The active ingredients are initially used in food. At that time, AMINO is running parallel to the company's main business, the liquid sugar production, and contributes little to the company's economic success.
