Looking back at his life and career, Karl Storz once described his commitment to quality as follows: “I only finished a task when I was completely satisfied with the quality of my work, when I could say that I would let my family be treated with this instrument.” This commitment to quality is still of paramount importance to the company and is a cornerstone of the development and production of our industrial products. The company’s philosophy of in-house training ensures the continuity of this commitment to quality by all KARL STORZ employees, whether it be filigree craftsmanship or on more modern production lines – only the highest quality counts. Endoscopes as well as medical instruments and appliances from KARL STORZ are esteemed throughout the world as the most advanced and reliable available.
Product safety is of utmost importance to KARL STORZ. Quality assurance, therefore, plays an important role that goes far beyond statutory requirements. Intensive checks and safety tests with specially developed in-house automatic measuring systems and individual documentation are standard procedure. Each and every product has its own unmistakable fingerprint.
