Ypsomed marks its 10th anniversary

(PresseBox) ( Burgdorf, )
Burgdorf-based medical technology firm Ypsomed is celebrating its 10th anniversary today. Formed from Disetronic in 2003, Ypsomed has been through an eventful 10 years. Today, it is a successful, internationally active diabetes and self-injection device company. More than 300 invited guests and employees are joining the founders, principal shareholders and CEO Willy Michel in "Das Zelt" in Burgdorf to mark the occasion of the company's successful first decade.

Exactly 10 years ago, Willy Michel sold the insulin pump business to Roche. The pen business, Disetronic's second mainstay, remained in the hands of Willy Michel. The Ypsomed firm emerged from that separation and in just a few years grew to become a global leader in the development and production of injection systems. Ypsomed has consistently pursued the vision of "Ypsomed solutions make self-care simpler and easier," which has set the tone for entrepreneurial spirit and innovative work. During the initial phase, between 2003 and 2006, sales more than doubled, exceeding CHF 310 million and in 2006, Ypsomed generated more than 60% of its sales with its largest customer, Sanofi-Aventis. However, the success of the cooperation made Ypsomed highly dependent on Sanofi which was followed by fundamental structural changes. As a result Ypsomed has diversified its product and service portfolio in recent years and grown accordingly. Today, in the Ypsomed Delivery Systems business unit, a wide range of pens and autoinjectors is available that are customized to meet the needs of individual pharmaceutical customers. And, since 2008, Ypsomed has been growing its direct business. Ypsomed's diabetes products are now sold under the family brand mylife(TM) Diabetescare in more than 50 countries. The next milestone in the history of Ypsomed will be the launch of its own insulin pump, which will be introduced to the market in the second half of 2014. Going back to the roots of success is the outlook for the future.

More than 300 guests from the world of politics and business have been invited to attend the festivities in "Das Zelt" on Burgdorf's Schützenmatte. Speeches will be delivered by Federal Council member Johann Schneider-Ammann, Cantone President Andreas Rickenbacher and Town President Elisabeth Zäch. Willy Michel and his son Simon Michel will also address the invited guests during the event. Popular radio and television moderator Nik Hartmann will host the anniversary celebrations. An anniversary party including a gala dinner will follow that evening for all of Ypsomed's employees.
