The Family Company took his origin when Anton Hipp started to produce Surgical Scissors in homework. After the examination of his Surgery-Mechanic-Master and after an extension of a new Production centre at the residential building the single company ANTON HIPP was founded on 01.07.1970.
The one-man-company produced a little range of Surgical Scissors for famous medicine technic Companys in Tuttlingen. The high standard of quality and the reliability ensured that ANTON HIPP was well known quickly. Now the range of Surgical Instruments could be expanded to all areas of application. In 1976 the production contains already 6 employees and Mr. Dieter Hipp, son of Anton Hipp started the education to a Surgery Mechanic in the company of his father. 1985 he took his Surgery-Mechanic-Master.
In this year the company was changed into a GmbH and the 2nd son Gerhard Hipp took on the commercial of the company as examined usinessman. Since this date all already existing export relationships have been extended to all continents. To the manufacturing programme which contains meanwhile over 400 models the sale of Surgical Instruments of all kind was added. In 1989 a new production centre in the Annastr. 25/1 was bought and nothing could stop the expansion.
Mainly the Production of high-quality Scissors with Tungsten Carbide got the priority. From 1996 until February 1998 the company ANTON HIPP started into the High-Tec-Business with Titan-Plate-Systems and Resorbable Systems for the Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery.
