Hamburg, June 26th: Thirty years ago today, on June 26th, 1989, the doctor and chemist Dr. Erich Döllefeld, MD-PhD, founded GBA Gesellschaft für Bioanalytik mbH. This young company started off providing a reasonable range of environmental analyses. While still in the beginning phases, this range of services was continually expanded, and food analysis soon became an equally significant second pillar. In the course of the ongoing strategy laid out by the shareholders and management, the company initially started its successful expansion throughout northern Germany in 2007 and later entered the market for pharmaceutical analysis. Today, 30 years after its foundation, the GBA Group is one of the leading providers of laboratory services in Germany and Austria in the fields of food, environmental, and pharmaceutical analysis, and furthermore is one of the most dynamically growing companies in this business.
