Schmitz logo

90 years of experience have made SCHMITZ u. Söhne one of the leading international manufacturers of medical products. The company’s passion for operating tables with specialised accessories and workstations for gynaecology, including video colposcopy, urology, proctology and obstetrics is reflected in the quality, mobility, functionality and design of all SCHMITZ products.

Functional trolleys, patient stretchers, furniture for operating theatres and outpatient departments as well as general medical furniture complete the SCHMITZ product portfolio for hospitals and medical practices.

Since 1930, the family-run company, now in its fourth generation, has been standing for expertise, reliability, solidity and consistency. In addition to two German locations, the company is represented internationally by seven branch offices in Europe, USA, Latin America and Asia.

Setting the standard for their STL patient stretchers, SCHMITZ partnered with BioCote® to incorporate antimicrobial technology into areas of the transport system, such as side guards, release buttons, levers, push-bars and the release of the backrest adjustment. Manufactured into the colour-neutral coating of these key touchpoint areas, BioCote® technology has been proven to reduce bacteria by 90% in 2 hours.

With a strong focus on product innovation, the SCHMITZ STL patient stretcher is a winner of the reddot Design Award, a benchmark in quality and design. This is a testament to SCHMITZ’s commitment to delivering products which are superior in quality, appearance, ergonomics and functionality – an approach that continues to win over customers worldwide.

What our partners say

  • We chose to work with BioCote because they are the leading antimicrobial brand. We explored other options but soon realised the knowledge, experience and credibility they bring to the table could not be matched. When customers purchase our products we want them to be assured the product will deliver in every aspect, this includes delivering superior antimicrobial performance.

  • Partnering with Biocote was a simple decision: to be able to show our customers we use a proven supplier with knowledge in this specialist area and allows us to combine our expertise and provide the market with new and exciting solutions. The antimicrobial feature for our cable management systems allowed us to differentiate ourselves with PVC trunking in the Health and Education sectors, key markets for REHAU.

  • BioCote provides our range of dog toys with an additional USP. Also, it helps to address concerns over germs which can be passed from pet to owner. We are all so aware of the threat of viruses and bacteria nowadays and we wanted to help families help prevent these being passed through their dog’s toys. After launching BioSafe Germ Smart Dog toys (which are manufactured with BioCote) we have had positive feedback from both our customers and the end consumer.
