Steiner Arzneimittel

Leader in the production of antibiotics containing cephalosporin

Steiner Arzneimittel is the specialist for the production of cephalosporin-containing medicinal products within the Aristo Pharma Group. 

The site in Berlin-Lichterfelde is one of the few pharmaceutical manufacturers in Europe to offer the development, production and packaging of this antibiotic group. As a result, the Aristo Pharma Group as well as our European third-party customers benefit from a reliable supply of cephalosporins without long transport routes.

In addition, Steiner Arzneimittel’s customers have access to a fully comprehensive laboratory for contract analysis.

We see ourselves as flexible, specialised all-rounders who get things done with teamwork and a hands-on mentality.

Location advantages

What distinguishes us

As an important business and science location, Berlin is a decisive factor for the success of Steiner Arzneimittel. We benefit from short transport routes to Central and Eastern Europe and the availability of qualified workers. An advantage for our employees is, on the one hand, the familial atmosphere in the team and, on the other hand, the fixed two-shift operation.


Our core competencies


With our plant and equipment, we are able to produce not only film-coated tablets and hard gelatine capsules, but also dry granulates and fill these into bottles as dry juices.


Packaging: The tablets, film-coated tablets and hard gelatine capsules we produce are properly sealed directly on site via our blister line. The bottling of the moisture-sensitive cephalosporins as dry juice is just as safe.


In our laboratory, we offer full product support with process validations and stability tests. We have all the usual testing equipment at our disposal, such as release apparatus, liquid and gas chromatographs or hardness and abrasion testers.
