It is always up-to-date with the latest technologies and adjusts its processes according to current demand.

Our story at a glance

Symrise, the parent company of Symotion, was established in 2003 through the merger of the Haarmann & Reimer (founded in 1874) and Dragoco (founded in 1919) companies. The new stock corporation’s initial public offering took place in 2006 and the share is listed today in the MDAX index of the German stock exchange. Logistics have been of great importance throughout the company’s history because raw materials have long been sourced from all over the world and products are quickly exported to all continents. Symotion GmbH was founded at the time of the IPO as a fully consolidated subsidiary of Symrise AG to also provide external companies with its services, skills and experience.
