Tradition

Gimmi was founded almost 100 years ago and has supported countless doctors in providing their patients with the best possible care, based on the latest medical science. This legacy and vast experience are both a treasure and a responsibility for us. They distinguish us from many of our competitors in the medical technology market.

Our Expertise

Close to doctors

We manufacture devices that enable you to achieve first-class results in the OR. We’re only able to do that because we optimize all of our products and processes with quality and user proximity in mind. Our employees are unique in terms of their expertise, motivation and experience. And of course, we actively assure quality management and certification according to DIN EN ISO 13485:2016.

The trust we’ve built enables fast and informal communication about any current challenges and needs, and encourage new customers to do so as well. Here at Gimmi, you’ll always find a willing ear and constructive solutions.

Regional responsibility and global reach

Despite small beginnings in Tuttlingen, we are now a global company, with distribution partners in over 125 countries, giving us unique proximity to surgeons, OR specialists, and to patients and their needs. Nevertheless, we maintain our regional roots – in Tuttlingen, the heart of the medical  technology industry. Here is where we train all our specialists and create rewarding and family-friendly jobs.

Our story

Gimmi has operated for nearly a century, and is led today by the fourth family generation. The company is now part of the Vitalmex group, based in Mexico, which is one of the biggest corporations in medical technology in Central and South America. With Gimmi based in Europe, this is the ideal partnership in which both sides are able to learn from each other, to continually evolve and improve together.
