Fresenius Medical Care

We achieved record sales and earnings and increased our profitability. We further expanded our worldwide leading position in dialysis and strengthened our business, especially in Europe and Asia-Pacific. We successfully continued to improve the quality of our medical outcome. This is especially important to us.

Fresenius Kabi

We reached record levels in sales and earnings. Our business has grown in all regions and in all product segments. We achieved exceptionally strong growth in North America at APP Pharmaceuticals, driven by new products and also consistent quality and supply.

Fresenius Helios

We are more than the sum of our parts: our strong clinic network and the interdisciplinary exchange of know-how guarantee our patients best-in-class treatment and care. The increase in hospital admissions was again the basis for successful growth in 2010. Our mission is to continue improving the high standard of quality we provide.

Fresenius Vamed

We achieved excellent results in 2010: both sales and EBIT reached historical record levels. Order intake and order backlog also increased substantially, providing a solid basis for further growth.
