Here is what Artisan Global Discovery Fund has to say about Gerresheimer AG in their Investor Letter:

“We started new investment campaigns in Gerresheimer. Gerresheimer is a German manufacturer of packaging products for medication and drug delivery devices made of specialty glass and plastic—bottles, vials, syringes, ampoules, cartridges, inhalers, insulin pens, etc. After years of lackluster growth, a new management team is dedicated to accelerating revenue growth by focusing on higher value products such as ready-to-fill vials, higher-resistance glass vials and smart devices. Management is also focused on penetrating the biologics market by helping small biotech companies choose the right glass vials for their products. From an operational standpoint, the company has also increased investments to expand manufacturing capacity and drive increased automation. We believe the confluence of these efforts should accelerate top-line growth and improve margins in the period ahead.”
