Since the company KARL STORZ was founded in 1945, more than half a century has passed – a period of time during which the enterprise has written a significant chapter of medical and technological history. Karl Storz had a vision which was transformed into reality and has been extended through to his very day thanks to pioneering discoveries and inventions.

Modern high-technology medical systems consist of components from the most diverse fields of engineering : optics, mechanics and electronics must work in perfect harmony if the instruments are to function as desired. As simple as the requirement for a harmonious interplay of the individual components may sound, its realization is in fact a highly complex matter.

No matter how much meticulous care is given to development, the quality of the end product is decided by day-to-day manufacturing routine. The perfect instrument can only be created when all components are ideally matched and coordinated.

Our company attains this high quality by ensuring that each and every component is developed, manufactured and subjected to a constant quality control process at our own company. This concept guarantees a maximum of functionality and quality for each individual endoscopic system. The continuity of this quality-consciousness is ensured by the company´s tenet of training its employees from all sectors at our own company.

KARL STORZ will maintain and extend even further its leading position in technological development. However, genuine progress is rarely spectacular – it is the result of countless individual steps that are subjected to repeated scrutiny. 

In accordance with this philosophy, KARL STORZ decided to support the CROES study. This kind of study, exploring the different ways of treatment and using different technologies, is an ideal field to collect a wide variety of information and to prepare the future.
