Locations

Optimally positioned across Europe

Under the umbrella brand Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe, four European sites in Germany, the Czech Republic and Wales combine their medical technology expertise. With this formation, Olympus has been strengthening its leading position in minimally invasive surgery since 2010.

Hamburg / Germany

Headquarters and center for rigid endoscopy

The global competence center for rigid endoscopy is located in Hamburg. This is also the headquarters of Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe.

The cornerstone for Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe was laid as far back as 1954 with "Medizintechnischen Werkstätten Winter & Ibe" (Winter & Ibe medical engineering workshops). In 1974, a research and development cooperation was agreed with the Japanese Olympus Corporation, which led to a majority interest in the company in 1979. Advanced Japanese optical technology and German precision mechanics proved to be an internationally successful combination. Today, the development and manufacturing complex is the global Olympus competence center for rigid endoscopy across an area of over 32,000 m². In the coming years, the operational areas will be increased and latest production processes (e.g. TPS/lean manufacturing) will be introduced.

Berlin / Germany

Center for high frequency technology

The global competence center for the development and manufacturing of bipolar high frequency technology is located in Teltow near Berlin. The site contributes this expertise to Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe.

Founded in 1999 as Celon AG, our Berlin location has belonged to Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe since 2004. The site develops and manufactures minimally invasive medical technology with high frequency technology and contributes years of experience as well as many international patents. Since this is a future-oriented field in medical technology, the operational areas in Teltow will be expanded by a total of 5,000 m² and latest production processes (e.g. TPS/lean manufacturing) will be introduced.
