Who We Are
We are a leading group of companies in the field of food and feed safety, focusing on natural feed additives, feed and food analysis, as well as crop protection, and headquarters in Austria. The ERBER Group consists of BIOMIN, ROMER LABS, SANPHAR and EFB. Sales partners included, we are represented in more than 120 countries - in about 50 we have our own business units. Our international focus and our in-house research and development department are key elements of our success and have contributed to our growth for more than 30 years – sustainably and in a forward-thinking way.
We see ourselves as an expert organization and the world leader in our core business of mycotoxin deactivation. Our powerful in-house research and development provides the basis for the development of customer-oriented and innovative solutions. This is especially supported by joint projects with renowned universities and research institutions.
The company was founded in 1983 as "Erber KG" and later "Biomin GmbH" in Pottenbrunn/Lower Austria and has remained in family hands ever since. The owners show their commitment and belief in the business location Austria by establishing the corporate headquarters in Getzersdorf, Lower Austria and by placing particular emphasis on sustainable regional economic policy (in Austria, but also in our business units) and corporate governance.
Vision & Mission
The success factors of the entire ERBER Group are based on three pillars: innovation, internationalization and integration.
1. INNOVATION FOR CUSTOMER BENEFIT...
... has been the driving force from the beginning and has become an integrated part of our employees’ mindset, as well as of the GROUP’s strategies. The extensive in-house research and various collaborations with universities and research institutions guarantee that the pipeline of new products and services is always full.
2. INTERNATIONALIZATION FOR GLOBAL USE...
The sales channels and business units of our affiliates reach out to more than 100 markets on all five continents. The international presence and a strong desire to grow the brands and services resulted in a sustainable market growth for the GROUP beyond our industry’s peers.
3. INTEGRATION FOR HIGHEST EFFICIENCY...
... among the affiliates ensures that each member of the GROUP can actually and effectively carry out all daily business processes. The GROUP has a unique "one boss matrix" organization model with defined core processes. Thus it ensures that even the smallest selling business unit is "not left alone". Consequently, effective solution-oriented products and services can be delivered to any place and customer on the globe.
ERBER Group principles are based on sustainable, long-term strategies. We are here to help eradicate hunger, malnutrition and poverty. We are Pioneers, Partners and Performers leaving foodprints for a better world for us and our children.
