Welcome to MDS

“Life should be beautiful and colourful – we add the colour.”

It all began with a herring from Denmark. Company founder Helmut Schulz imported the first fish from Scandinavia in 1949, thereby laying the cornerstone for the MDS group, which has now evolved into an international player.

The group controls the operations and strategies of subsidiaries HMF Food Production, PRO DIMI PHARMA, MERX BELLAVIE and SPRINGROCK. These companies deliver products for nearly all areas of life: foodstuff, drugs and medical devices, food supplements, cosmetics, and non-food products. MDS creates valuable synergistic effects. Spread internationally, the shares of MDS Holding play a vital role here.

60+ years of corporate history have enabled us to build a high level of know-how, international growth, and experience-bolstered competence. But there is one thing that hasn’t changed at all: up to the present day, MDS is a family-run enterprise – today in the third generation.
