Conversion to European public limited company completed
Nov 05 2021
International life sciences equipment company Eppendorf, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, has completed its conversion to the European legal form Societas Europaea (SE) and now operates as Eppendorf SE.
“We are convinced that we have taken the right step at the right time with this modern legal form, which is very common in large family-owned companies," said co-ceo’s Eva van Pelt and Dr Peter Fruhstorfer. "The company's name as a European public limited company is a clear signal that even more strongly expresses its global corporate culture. In addition, the new legal form shows that it is an international company and that national borders play less and less of a role for us."
Demonstrating its development into a progressive internationally active European company, the new name also acts to support the companies global success even more effectively, they added.
Conversion into a Societas Europaea has not resulted in any changes to the company’s structure, with Management and Supervisory Board members continuing to work for Eppendorf SE. Group headquarters will remain in Hamburg, Germany and the character of this independent family-owned company will be preserved.
