Introducing ourselves

Our aim is to try to optimize what already exists, identify possible improvements and translate these improvements into solutions.

Grete Berger, daughter of Josef Herbert Berger and his wife Valerie, was born in what is then Imperial Vienna at the turn of the century. Grete took her first steps among medicine bottles and test tubes. Josef Herbert Berger was director of the Vienna Serological Institute. For health reasons the family moved to South Tyrol where they opened a pharmacy in Meran. Valerie died at 26.

Grete Berger inherited her father’s vocation and studied pharmacy in Vienna, where she found love with the merchant Otto Broschek.

Grete Berger and Otto Broschek took the reins of the business and made it prosper. Destiny took them to the small Tyrolean town of Fieberbrunn where they founded in 1947, the “Gebro G. Broschek KG”, an acronym in honor of the first family pharmacist, Grete Broschek.

That small Alpine laboratory is now one of Austria’s leading pharmaceutical companies in the area of ​​pain relief with subsidiaries in Switzerland, Hungary and Spain.

There are six of them and they go together in pairs:

Effort and Commitment: the values emotionally link us with the challenge of giving the best of ourselves every day. Yes! Every day without becoming discouraged.
