A family company through the ages

When Eduard A. Voigt founded a retail business for pharmaceutical products in Romanshorn in 1904, he laid the foundations for the Voigt Group. It is still a family business today, with the fourth generation in charge of its operations. Over the years, it has encountered many wide-ranging changes in the Swiss market and has grown from a small enterprise into one of the leading pharmaceutical logistics providers in Switzerland.
