Two sites in Berlin. More than 270 smart heads actively involved. More than 130 years of tradition in pharmaceutical production. A leading role in the areas of women’s health and hemorrhoidal complaints in Germany. International activities in the growing markets of Asia and Eastern Europe: that is DR. KADE.

Focus on Germany

As an independent family company, DR. KADE has been successful in the pharmaceutical sector since 1886. By concentrating on the business segments of gynecology, proctology, and pain treatment, we consciously focus on our long-term core competencies and are one of the key actors – both for prescription drugs and self-medication (over-the-counter). DR. KADE is one of the leading providers in the women’s health sector in Germany (for hormonal therapy during menopause and gynecological antimycotics) and for the treatment of hemorrhoidal complaints. With innovative products DR. KADE is also a competent partner for doctors and patients in pain therapy – e.g. for treating back pain.

International sales

Through joint ventures and sales cooperation we are not only active in our core market Germany, but also in other European and non-European countries, for example in Poland (Kadefarm) and Japan (Maruho).

People – our success factor

Our staff is the basis of our success: More than 270 employees at both Berlin sites ensure that we are right at the forefront of a highly dynamic market environment. We also maintain a close relationship with doctors and pharmacists. We offer comprehensive information and advice, qualified training, and reliable service. Our joint goal is to improve the quality of the life of patients.


Experience you can rely on: the success of DR. KADE began in 1886 in a pharmacy at Oranienplatz in Berlin. Since then we have developed from a supplier to the imperial court into an internationally active pharmaceutical manufacturer – more about that in our interactive history.
