Management

As a publicly listed company, we combine the dynamic attitudes expected by the international markets with the long-term thinking of the founding family who is shaping our corporate strategy to this day.


Long-term thinking, dynamic actions

Both publicly traded and family owned, with approximately 50,000 employees in 66 countries, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, is a constituent of the DAX, the German blue chip stock market index. The founding family, now in the 13th generation, is still the majority owner. This is made possible by our company structure: a corporation with general partners (Kommanditgesellschaft auf Aktien - KGaA). In a KGaA, the total capital is divided between general partners and limited partners. The general partners manage the businesses and are liable with their private assets; the limited partners are liable with their contributions.

As general partners, the Merck family holds approximately 70% of the company’s total capital via E. Merck KG, Darmstadt, Germany. This ownership structure has shaped who we are today: We have a strong heritage of taking responsibility for our employees, the environment and society.
