In 2000 Mike & Stacy Gauthier, president and vice president, husband and wife, started up Gauthier Biomedical. Both having degrees in biomedical engineering from Marquette University they jumped head first into the surgical instrumentation industry.With a growing family and a new company the Gauthier's opened up shop just north of Milwaukee along Brown Deer Road. As the company grew so did the need for space. GBI moved up to Grafton, WI and then opened a second location in Franklin, WI. Several years and a few building expansions later the Gauthier's are now consolidating the two facilities into a state of the art 80,000 sq foot head quarters located in Grafton, WI. Plans are under way, ground breaking has commenced, and the new building should be fully operational by the summer of 2012.
