Positive Premiere at the AAOS Annual Meeting

For the first time, the Klingel medical metal group presented itself at the “Annual Meeting” of the AAOS (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) in Chicago with its own stand. On three congress/trade fair days, the partner companies Klingel medical metal (Pforzheim, Germany), puracon (Rosenheim, Germany), Bächler Feintech (Hölstein, Switzerland) and Ruetschi Technology (Muntelier, Switzerland) presented their entire spectrum as contract manufacturers and full service providers for orthopaedics.

On display were customised versions of implants, instruments and tools for surgical procedures, complete, sterile-packed surgical kits as well as sterile and non-sterile packaging for medical technology. Interesting and promising discussions developed at the company’s own stand, but also during visits to the stands of well-known medical technology manufacturers who were also represented as exhibitors.

The stand personnel were confident that the high quality and high standards of the congress participants/trade fair visitors will have a positive effect on new and existing business relationships as well as the order situation of the participating partner companies.

Organizational changes within the Klingel medical metal group

We would like to inform you about some organizational changes within the Klingel medical metal group.

According to our strategy to cover large parts of the value chain and thus providing our customers with a wide range of solutions from a single source, we have grown strongly in recent years.

This growth has also resulted from the acquisition of selected companies, so that the Klingel medical metal group today consists of Klingel medical metal, Josef Ganter Feinmechanik, Bächler Feintech and puracon – and we offer our customers everything from metal processing for MedTech, the development of medical & dental instruments, tools and components as well as sterile packaging.

Since we would like to maintain our quality, speed and flexibility for you in the future, we have decided to centralize our sales across the group and are pleased to announce that Lucas van der Merwe will be the new Chief Sales Officer (CSO) of the Klingel medical metal group. Mr. van der Merwe will also continue in his previous role as CEO of Bächler Feintech AG.

Furthermore, we have made extensive changes internally and created a central responsibility for production at the Pforzheim, Dauchingen, Matzingen and Hölstein plants, which reports directly to the Group‘s CEO, Ralf Petrawitz. We have also streamlined our internal processes across the Group so that finance & controlling, supply chain, IT and human resources will now be coordinated centrally from Pforzheim.

We look forward to continuing to work with you.
