Zeitgeist and vision

From an idea to a global player

Heinz Herenz Medizinalbedarf GmbH has a history rich in tradition going back to 1949. It begins with Heinz and Ingrid Herenz, who started from scratch in the post-war period.

It was a time of hardship and the couple saw a great need for medical products. Thus, in 1949, the two founded the company Heinz Herenz Medizinalbedarf GmbH.

In addition to building up a sales force, the small family business also focused on products developed and produced in-house in the laboratory and medical fields. Over the years, these developments gave rise to our own patents and name rights for consumables in the medical and laboratory sector. As it turned out, these ideas were not only zeitgeist but visionary.

Today, more than 70 years later, Heinz Herenz Medizinalbedarf GmbH supplies clinics and laboratories in over 110 countries and has made a name for itself worldwide with numerous patents and trademarks.

Improvement in all business areas through innovative solutions

Ethical principles as a central idea in daily business conduct

Since our foundation in 1949, we have been constantly adapting our product range to the increasing challenges of the healthcare industry and general progress. We strive to ensure continuous improvement in all business areas through innovative solutions. In doing so, we always put the safety as well as the direct benefit for patients, laboratory staff and medical personnel in the foreground. Through these principles we enjoy the trust of our customers and partners. However, we are also aware that these must not be the only principles for our daily actions. We also consider it our duty to live ethical principles as a central idea in our daily business conduct. For this reason, we at Heinz Herenz Medizinalbedarf GmbH have set down these thoughts and principles in writing in this Code of Conduct.

This QMS forms the basis for our being certified – for more than 20 years – by our Notified Body. The current certification is in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13485:2016.
Our core competence

Unique know-how and assortment for medical disposables and laboratory supplies

Since the foundation of the company, i.e. for more than 75 years, we have specialized in the development and distribution of laboratory supplies, microbiology accessories and disposables. So we had enough time to expand our knowledge, our product range and our logistics.

In addition, we are passionate about the development and production of medical disposables. Many of our own products are now used worldwide, such as Steristopfen®, Gyno Brush®, smear brushes and Sonosafe® sonography protective covers.

In our efforts to develop something new or make something good even better, we will continue to develop many medical product innovations for the benefit of people in the future. There is no shortage of ideas.
