Guided tour
Sandoz, Kundl

On Wednesday 23.11.2016 35 students in the fields of chemistry and pharmaceutics took a trip to Kundle to gain some insight into the pharmaceutical company Sandoz. Part of the Novartis-Group, Sandoz is a world leading specialist in the development of generics and biosimilars since 1886. The factory in Kundl was founded in 1946 as "Biochemie GmbH" and integrated into the Novartis-Group in 1964.
