Its core areas of business are precious metals, special metals, dental materials, medical technology, quartz glass, sensors and specialised light sources. The company was founded in 1851 and is one of the biggest family businesses in Germany measured by turnover. Heraeus Holding employs 12,931 people in more than 120 companies, generating product sales of 4.1 billion and precious metal sales totalling 17.9 billion. In 1851, at the age of 24, the pharmacist and chemist Wilhelm Carl Heraeus took over his father's 'Einhorn Apothecary' in Hanau. The business had been in the ownership of the Heraeus family since 1660, acting as an official court apothecary to local counts. Wilhelm Carl Heraeus began laying the foundations for a global family business, which has now been headquartered in Hanau, east of Frankfurt, for more than 150 years.show more
