When introducing IMA Germany we cannot but talk about Mr. Henk van der Ree, nicknamed as Mister Blister; he was the one who sold the very first IMA blister packaging line in the Germany Pharma industry, indeed.
In 1978 Henk set up in Viersen an agency called REPA, and he was so successful that less than 10 years later, IMA decided to buy his agency to establish its German Branch over there: Soteco Verpackungsysteme.
Henk was not only the head of the Branch but he was most of all a visionary who understood the importance of creating partnerships with Customers through specialized and dynamic salesmen supported by an equally efficient back office.
A couple of names changed over time, but relocations and decades have not changed our ambitious and pioneering attitude. Today, IMA Germany is based in Cologne, in the most “Italian City” in Germany.
