Hain Lifescience SA (Pty) Ltd: Company profile and History

Hain Lifescience GmbH, founded in 1988, is the manufacturer and distributor of molecular biology diagnostic systems for the laboratory.  The cornerstone of the company was laid in 1986 with the establishment of a business partnership by brothers David and Tobias Hain. While it originally started purely as a mail-order company, the focus of the company today is particularly on the independent development, production and distribution of modern diagnostic systems in over 50 countries.  The ever-increasing number of employees and the new construction of a three-storey office and laboratory facility , completed in 2007, reflect the importance of these test systems in modern medicine.  Based on the continuous expansion of the company’s facilities, Hain Lifescience currently has more than 100 employees in Nehren in the district of Tübingen.  Additional expansion steps include the establishment of subsidiaries, for example in Spain and East Africa and South Africa.

The constant strong corporate growth of Hain Lifescience is in particular due to substantial capital investment in in-house research and development and the innovative products of the highest quality that result from this. Close cooperation with leading national and international universities and reference centers, clinics and medical specialists in practice guarantee timely transfer of the newest scientific knowledge into products for routine use.  Since we attach great value on the inspected quality of our products during development, production and marketing, comprehensive quality control as well as the certified quality management according to ISO9001/13485 and the fulfillment of the European in-vitro diagnostics guidelines are naturally a standard for us. This allows us to always keep our product portfolio in line with the most current state of knowledge and developments, and thereby to serve the interest of our customers and to constantly improve our customer service.
