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.
(USTOMED = Ulrich STOrz MEDizin)
Joined by son-in-law Oliver Keuffel, an internationally acclaimed specialist in the field of implant dentistry.
Oliver Keuffel becomes a partner and a managing partner of USTOMED.
Oliver Keuffel acquires all the USTOMED shares and is now the sole owner. After over 50 years serving medicine and dentistry, Ulrich Storz leaves operative company management but remains active as a consultant to USTOMED.
Removal to the new USTOMED company building in which all USTOMED activities will in future be grouped under one roof: production, new development, administration, logistics, Further Training Centre with internationally renowned lecturers, an absolute industry innovation with an affiliated, specialised oral and maxillofacial surgery practice that provides advice for ongoing new developments and helps to ensure that USTOMED is now regarded as a national and international market leader in the special field of dental and surgical instrument manufacture.
We always have a finger on the pulse of the times. Our close collaboration with leading international universities and opinion leaders enables us to recognise the requirements for new methods and standards at an early stage and develop solutions more quickly. Excellent relations with practice are also becoming visible in the company’s new building.
When in the practice on the upper floor a new idea or new requirement for an instrument is developed, it immediately goes to Product Development and Prototyping on the ground floor and back to the practice tests: with such short distances innovations can be implemented swiftly and efficiently. As a result we offer an interdisciplinary, comprehensive range of products that comprises many thousands of different instruments.
We have one of the largest ranges of instruments, not only for dentists but also for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, implant dentists and periodontists. Many of our pioneering innovations are now firmly established in dentistry as well as oral and maxillofacial surgery and they constitute an integral part of those disciplines.
In the case of consultation services the advantages of direct distribution are obvious: your direct contact with us ensures that your enquiry is processed quickly and without any indirect procedures. Contact with your personal USTOMED specialist ensures that you are understood properly – after all, we are experts in our field. The resulting customer orientation and commitment to service have made us one of the leading companies in the industry. For decades, most of our new customers have come to us through recommendations from satisfied colleagues. References
