Back in 1843 the founder’s family began manufacturing knives. The grandfather of USTOMED’s company founder, Ulrich Storz, was one of the co-founders of the Surgical Mechanics Guild of Tuttlingen, one of the major centres in this industry. We at USTOMED will continue this tradition in future – symbolised by the newly built head office in Tuttlingen.

Throughout the world more than 3,500 practices equipped with our instruments and many thousands of national and international users are the best proof of our performance.

Established by Caspar Adam Kremm, master cutler and great-great-great-grandfather of Ulrich Storz, the company founder of USTOMED.
