- Second year co.don included in prestigious list of growth companies

Teltow/Germany, 17 November 2016 – co.don AG has been included in the FOCUS list of Growth Champions 2017. Growth Champions compiles a list of the 500 German companies with the highest revenue growth in the past four years. And co.don AG comes in eighth place in the category Chemistry and Pharma.

Dirk Hessel, CEO of co.don AG: "Our aim is to apply the regenerative therapy options from co.don to defer joint replacement or ideally to avoid it altogether in order to maintain everyday routines and quality of life. We are delighted that FOCUS has again selected co.don as a growth champion. This distinction is due to the performance of all our staff, who I would like to thank sincerely on behalf of the Executive Board. To date we have only operated in the German market. For autumn next year we are expecting EU marketing authorisation for our main product. So co.don AG's greatest growth potential is still ahead of us."
