From initially four employees, Bausch+Ströbel has developed into an internationally active group of companies with around 1,900 employees. Today Bausch+Ströbel, as a manufacturer of special machines, is one of the world market leaders in the pharmaceutical packaging sector.

The spectrum offered by Bausch+Ströbel ranges from semi-automatic filling and capping machines for laboratory operation and galenics, to machines in the medium performance range, to very complex high-performance systems that can process up to 60,000 objects per hour. Since 2013 Wilco AG has also belonged to the Bausch+Ströbel Group and has expanded its range of products to include high-precision, fully automatic inspection systems.

Bausch+Ströbel's customers include renowned companies worldwide from the pharmaceutical industry.
