Meet The 8 Billionaires Of The B. Braun Melsungen Family

B. Braun Melsungen AG, a German pharmaceutical and medtech company, has turned eight of Ludwig Georg Braun’s relatives, including his 5 children and 3 of his cousin Barbara Luedicke’s children, into billionaires.

It all started way back in June 23, 1839, when when Julius Wilhelm Braun, Ludwig’s great-great-grandfather, purchased Rosen-Apotheke, a small pharmacy in Melsungen, Germany.

Julius’ eldest son Bernhard Braun, who took over in 1864, began manufacturing pharmaceutical products like migraine sticks and plasters.

Later, in 1977, when Ludwig Georg Braun took over the family business, its sales were only $ 24 million.

Today B. Braun Melsungen is one of the world´s leading healthcare suppliers, has more than $5 billion in sales and employs 50,000 people. B. Braun Melsungen AG is still owned by the Braun family.
