“When the winds of change blow, some build walls for protection. Others build windmills to harness the winds. At sanotact, we see ourselves as ‘windmill builders’: every change offers opportunities for those who recognise them in time and use them boldly,” says Holger Winkel, summarising the company’s motivation.

“Our belief, which is firmly anchored in our values, is that it is people who make the difference. We are therefore proud to have been developing the business with our team very successfully and sustainably for years – it is great fun to work in a growing, successful, internationally oriented company. Everyone can make a difference here!” says Dr Christoph Wenisch.

Ultimately, it is the consumer’s decision to purchase that determines whether we have really understood their needs: do we have the right product at the right price, in the right packaging at the right place? It’s an exciting challenge that we enjoy taking on every day,” adds Holger Winkel.
