HST's corporate organization spans two locations in Kressbronn on Lake Constance, and St. Gangloff in Thuringia.
Kressbronn on Lake Constance
Kressbronn, on Lake Constance, is the headquarters of the company, as well as the production facility for the company’s pharmaceutical infusions, which are sold under the brand name “H&S Arzneitee” exclusively through pharmacies.
H&S Arzneitee operates under the GMP standard and with a Pharmaceutical Manufacturing License (first issued on 14.02.1964, the current one on 03.02.2022) that is issued and monitored by the appropriate regulatory authority (RP Tübingen) in accordance with §13 AMG (German Medicines Act). The packaging for the well-known H&S tea brand traditionally follows the highest quality standards.
Last but not least, Kressbronn is also the home of tea bag and packaging machines, which have been developed and built since 1950 for the company's own manufacturing operations as well as for worldwide distribution under the name HST.
St. Gangloff in Thuringia
In St. Gangloff in Thuringia, a variety of tea products for the food retail market as well as for professional consumers (out-of-home sector, catering, canteens, commercial kitchens) are produced under the "Goldmännchen-TEE" brand.
Certainly also due to its origin in Thuringia, Goldmännchen-TEE has become an enormously popular brand, launched from the new East German States. As early as 1990 (!), production was started here in cooperation with a former East German company, and the success of a brand that consistently stands by its production site in St. Gangloff and uses regionally grown herbs from Thuringia in select tea varieties quickly became apparent.
Consumers enthusiastically accepted the products, and a modern plant was soon built for their production.
