Peter Höhnle. Founder.
Peter Höhnle, the founder of the company, actually intended to earn his living as a manufacturer working from home in the surgical instrument industry. That meant manufacturing instruments in a small workshop at home which were subsequently sold by major companies.
During this period, Peter Höhnle produced a wide range of instruments. Tweezers, screw lock and box lock forceps, plaster-of-Paris shears and many more. In 1966, when the demand for instruments was constantly increasing, Peter Höhnle decided to market the instruments he manufactured himself. His wife Irene supported him by assuming the commercial side of the business. At that stage they were manufacturing bone rongeur double action jaws and bone cutting forceps double action jaws.
Having concluded the college for master craftsmen, Peter Höhnle started to train apprentices – to date more than successfully. Thus, two surgical mechanics who had been trained by him were honoured as federal state and national winners over the years.
ARMIN HÖHNLE – FAMILY BUSINESS OWNER OF THE SECOND GENERATION
In 2001, Peter Höhnle transferred the continuously growing enterprise to his eldest son Armin, who has successfully continued the company. Peter and Irene Höhnle are still help out.
With the support of modern CNC controlled machines, the Höhnle experts continue to manufacture the bone rongeurs and bone cutting forceps with craftsmanship.
Special instruments such as extraction forceps, wire cutters or distractors are manufactured on request and according to customer`s special requirements.
The high and consistent quality of the products as well as the friendly and expert advice will continue as the hallmark of Höhnle. Our customers can rely on this.
"INNOVATION IS THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS!"
