From the idea to success
While working in the USA for several years, Franz Görlich becomes aware of special oils in food supplements at the beginning of the 1980s. He is particularly interested in high-quality Omega-3 fish oils. In the USA already a hype, but still virtually unknown in Germany and Europe.
As a courageous young man, Franz Görlich takes the business idea back with him to Germany and founds the Görlich Handelsgesellschaft, a trading company, in 1984 in his own living room as a classic start-up. Despite the difficult beginnings, Franz Görlich has total faith in his idea. Demand is growing steadily and so is the company and its product portfolio. After years of company growth, the company moved into its first own building in Edling in the Munich Metropolitan Region in 1996. A milestone was reached in the company’s history when a newly built state-of-the-art plant was put into operation in 2013.
Today, Goerlich Pharma GmbH develops and produces high-quality food supplements and supplies them to over 50 countries worldwide. Franz Görlich’s one-man start-up has become a company with approx 170 employees.
