Sa­tur­nus Ca­pi­tal AG is an ow­ner-ma­na­ged in­vest­ment com­pany fo­cu­sing on me­dium-si­zed com­pa­nies in Ger­many and Swit­zer­land. Stra­te­gi­cally, Sa­tur­nus Ca­pi­tal par­ti­cu­larly fo­cu­ses on the health­care, busi­ness and con­su­mer ser­vices, IT and in­dus­trial pro­duc­tion mar­kets.

SK Pharma was foun­ded in 2003 by Ste­phan Krone and has es­ta­blis­hed its­elf as a lea­ding lo­gistics ser­vice pro­vi­der for Eu­ro­pean and glo­bally ac­tive phar­maceuti­cal com­pa­nies. In this con­text, SK Pharma spe­cia­li­zes in phar­maceuti­cal, me­di­cal, cos­me­tic and die­tary pro­ducts.

To­ge­ther, SYZ Ca­pi­tal and Sa­tur­nus Ca­pi­tal will sup­port SK Pharma in the next phase to grow both or­ga­ni­cally and th­rough ac­qui­si­ti­ons. The goal is to con­so­li­date the highly frag­men­ted mar­ket for phar­maceuti­cal lo­gistics with SK Pharma. In the fu­ture, two re­pre­sen­ta­ti­ves of Sa­tur­nus Ca­pi­tal as well as Marc Syz and Phil­ippe Mil­liet as ex­ter­nal in­dus­try ex­perts will work clo­sely with the Krone fa­mily on the ad­vi­sory board and take an ac­tive role in the fur­ther de­ve­lop­ment of SK Pharma.
