Urlich Stolz Ulrich Storz (USTOMED = Ulrich STOrz MEDizin)

It´s in the family –
for more then 170 years…

Back in 1843 Adam Kremm, master cutler, began manufacturing knives. Ulrich Storz‘ grandfather Otto Storz-Buess expanded the workshops in 1890 for the manufacture of dental and surgical instruments. He became a cofounder of the Surgical Mechanics Guild of Tuttlingen, one of the major centres in this industry. Since 1908 there was a continous specialist counseling for running evolution by Marie Hilzinger, grandaunt of Ulrich Storz, registered dentist, and Otto Storz junior., Dentist, father of Ulrich Storz. We at USTOMED will continue this tradition in future – symbolised by the newly built head office in Tuttlingen.


Throughout the world more than 3,500 practices equipped with our instruments and many thousands of national and international users are the best proof of our performance.
