- Tuttlingen - World capital of Medical Technology
The city of Tuttlingen is a county town with a population of approximately 33,000 in the south of
the state Baden-W�rttemberg.
Around 600 small, medium and large medical technology businesses such as Karl Storz GmbH and
Aesculap AG have their headquarters here and are specialists in the manufacture of open surgical and minimally
invasive instruments, implants and other medical products.
In 1867 Gottfried Jetter began with the standardized production of surgical instruments in
Tuttlingen. Since then, numerous medical technology companies have settled. Starting out in garages and
basements, many of these former micro-enterprises have developed to become medium-sized or large companies
with enormous know-how.
