Culture and Values
Patient-Minded Collaborative Excellence
From our founding in Tuttlingen, Germany in 1867 to our present-day North American operations, achieving collaborative excellence in healthcare has always been part of our core. It's why we exist: to use collaborative excellence as a driver to improve the quality of a patient's life and stay ahead of the changing healthcare environment.
It's our people who make this possible. And it's our people who have made Aesculap the industry-leading company it is today. By constantly forging forward in the medical device space, our employees drive innovations and efficiencies by closely collaborating with our customers, patients, surgeons, nurses and healthcare personnel.
A century ago, we were renowned as medical device toolmakers - elite craftsmen whose precision, dedication and expertise in surgical equipment was infused into every surgical instrument we produced. We are proud of our heritage and today, we are toolmakers and so much more. With every new instrument, innovative implant and product we place in the hands of a surgeon, we are changing patients' lives every single day.
