About us

Our team is made up of experts in the areas of R&D, logistics, production and marketing. In addition, we work closely with our trusted external partners.

For the first two years, ConVet’s home was in Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen. Ideas were developed and implemented in the building designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry with a view of the marina. This creative environment paired with Hanseatic merchant tradition formed the successful basis for ConVet’s first activities.

Since 2010, our ConVet location has been in the pharma-oriented environment on the Creative Campus in Monheim.
