Our history

Our business has its roots in the Lüneburg salt-works. First mentioned in 956, salt for human consumption was extracted here until 1980. At the beginning of the 20th century the company "Saline Lüneburg und Chemische Fabrik GmbH" started its business with the production of magnesium and calcium compounds.

In 1983, Magnesia GmbH was founded as successor of the "Saline". Since that date our medium-sized enterprise headquartered in Lüneburg has been active as a distributing company for mineral compounds. Right from the beginning, we have been continuously adapting and expanding our product range to meet customer demands and expectations.

Over the years Magnesia has steadily evolved into an innovative and globally successful distribution company, both in the field of life sciences and technical applications.
