The Kapp Surgical GmbH has been founded in 1982 by Dietmar Kapp in Dürbheim near Tuttlingen. Due to his anticipatory guidance, the intuition in requirements and trends as well as investments in modern technique and Know-How led to a stable growth of Kapp Surgical. In 1991 his son Michael Kapp joined the company. Together with Dietmar Kapp he became managing director of Kapp Surgical GmbH in 2006. Based on Michael Kapp’s entry the successful continuity of the company has been ensured. In 1997 Orthomedical Implants GmbH has been founded as the sales partner of Kapp Surgical GmbH for medical instruments and implant systems. In the year 2000 the construction of the new building meant a quantum leap technically and also a huge increase in capacity. In 2002 the company has been restructured: In addition to our normal product range we put more emphasis on developing new instruments for our customers. We invest in the future – the satisfaction of our customers.
