tegaferm Holding GmbH was formed in May 2002 in Giesshuebl near Vienna, Austria
and relies on three decades of world-wide expertise of Theodor Gams in the enzyme field.
Mr. Gams, a food- and biotechnologist graduated at the Vienna University
started his career in the enzyme field as Technical Service Manager with
Miles Kali Chemie (later Solvay Enzymes)
in Hannover, Germany.
In 1978 he formed Biocon GmbH, the German subsidiary of Biocon Ltd. (now
Kerry Bio-Science) in Ireland, and served 10 years as General Manager
with personal responsibility for both sales and technical service.
In 1988 Mr. Gams formed his own GAMMA CHEMIE GmbH in Munich.
Based on broad technical know-how in product development, enzyme
formulation and application and with excellent staff and market
experience in Central and Eastern Europe, the company developed to the
well-known gammazym® group with subsidiaries in Slovakia, Poland,
Romania and Hungary. This group was acquired in May 2002 by AB Enzymes
and continues in operation.
tegaferm Holding GmbH initially specialized in the distribution of
enzymes to Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic countries. Due to excellent
results, the sales organisation is rapidly expanding by co-operating
with various companies, especially in Central- and Eastern Europe, where
tegaferm is in a postion to offer their enzymes competitively.
Depending on agreements, tegaferm sells also directly to end-users in
special fields of enzyme application. The main industrial markets for
tegaferm Holding GmbH are distilling, fruit juice, brewing and baking,
but also specialty enzymes for technical and food applications are
