WOM is an exceptional company. We are a hidden champion in the truest sense of the word. At home in the field of Minimally Invasive Medicine, we develop devices and accessories so that doctors can operate with small cuts. We produce Cameras, Insufflators, medical Pumps, and tubing that simplify and facilitate diagnosis and treatment easier for everyone. Our insufflators and pump systems dilate cavities in the body and turn previously complicated surgeries into minor procedures. Together with customers, doctors, and technical experts, our teams continuously search for new ways.
Our equipment technology is already globally market-leading leader in some medical areas such as pump systems for hysteroscopies or insufflators for laparoscopies. The name WOM, however, is not listed on any front panel. We are a supplier for the big providers in the field of minimally invasive surgery, but we remain discreetly in the background. As original equipment manufacturer (OEM), we offer our customers the entire range of services - we are your full service OEM provider.
Our customers trust us because they expect and get the highest quality from us. We ensure this with smart processes, best materials, pre-screened suppliers, and service to match. And we are constantly working to further improve standards because the satisfaction of our customers is equally important to us as the safety of patients.
WOM builds medical technical equipment with its customers and for its customers, precisely based on their needs and ideas, customized and unique. To this end, we coordinate therefore very closely already during the development phase. In a laboratory of the future, our InnoHub, we constantly work together with doctors and professionals on improvements for tomorrow's innovations.
Our service promise begins at conception. We handle approvals and registrations for our customers and self-certify. We also prepare the complete documentation. We deliver directly to the central warehouse and for this purpose operate an extensive international logistics network. In case of problems, customers can reach our technical service online and offline.
In addition to an open innovation culture, WOM relies on active dialogues and intensive knowledge transfer. We consciously seek contact with start-ups, promote their ideas, and establish connections for them. In the WOM ACADEMY, we also conduct regular training for the representatives of our customers as well as the technical service. A fully equipped show OR ensures the use of our equipment technology vividly comes to life. Above all, we continue to train our strong international teams in the WOM ACADEMY. Because we want to always think ahead a step for our customers - now and in the future.
How many champions like us come from the middle class? Over the years, we have guided our development deliberately and have matured in a growth market. Now we have locations on three continents. We think and act globally and across borders. We manufacture with advanced production facilities and equipment, cleanroom included. Exactly coordinated processes ensure maximum production precision - made in Germany.
Our employees in Europe, the U.S., and Asia are the cornerstone of our success. They are unique and carefully selected. Together, we are proud of our achievements and our values and ideals. Appreciation and respect are just as much a factor as passion for everyday tasks. And the curiosity about new and exciting colleagues. Read more in our Career Portal.
