LINK has grown to be an international company in the first rank of manufacturers of orthopedic implants and surgical instruments. When the company was founded in 1948, the development, manufacture, and marketing of instruments was in fact the main focus of the company's activities. Up to the present day, the LINK brand has remained a highly regarded mark of quality for surgical instruments. At LINK, patient safety is the main goal and has always had clear priority over economic considerations. While many other instrument manufactures have chosen to produce their products in other parts of the world to maintain or reduce costs, LINK has chosen to remain producing them in Germany to ensure the highest quality standards.
