Our company was established in 1954 by Willi Rudischhauser. The compact little workshop was located at this time in the family home. Production at the outset focused on ophthalmic instruments such as eyelid holders, lid specula, scalpels, curettes, chalazion spoons and lacrimal duct probes. The range of products was expanded shortly later through the addition of comprehensive otolaryngology (ENT) instruments such as hook retractors, curettes, spoons, needles and rasps. In addition, a large range of micro instruments was gradually developed for ENT applications.


Steady growth necessitated a move in 1970 to a larger production facility in Trossinger Strasse. Siegfried Rudischhauser became the Managing Director in 1984, with Rudischhauser simultaneously being registered as a limited liability company (GmbH).


Management was in the hands of Sandra Rudischhauser from 2000 until Steffen Rudischhauser took up his position on completion of his studies in 2005. 2008 saw the company move to the present production facility. The company is now run in the third generation by Managing Director Steffen Rudischhauser and authorised representative Sandra Rudischhauser.
