In 1922, Otto Bühler founded the "Special Factory for Automatic Precision Filling Machines" in Schwäbisch Hall. With drive and vision, he led Optima through turbulent times. 100 years later, we are a successful technology leader for packaging machines and filling lines. In our core markets around the world, we ensure that medicines, hygiene and medical products, food and cosmetics reach the people who need them safely, reliably and with the best possible protection.
A success story that tells of the willingness to permanently break new ground. Of groundbreaking developments and milestones. But also about a regional employer with highly motivated employees, united by one claim: OPTIMA, Latin: the best.
