From vaccine developers to pharma corporations: The most important German companies in the battle against the corona pandemic are to be found in Frankfurt RheinMain.
There’s no vaccine without suitable packaging. For this reason, Mainz-based Schott, a leading international maker of special glass and glass ceramic, this year committed 350 million Euros to expanding its production capacities. In 16 plants spread across the whole world, Schott can now manufacture vaccine phials made of borosilicate glass. This special glass is resistant to chemicals and changes in temperature and was invented in 1887 by chemist Otto Schott.
