A great vision, a great future.

To give you an insight into our company, we would like to start with a brief review: EPflex started in a garage in Dettingen an der Erms, a Swabian town not far south from Stuttgart. Here, in 1994, we founded EPflex. Everything we had was a vision. Many ideas arose combined with the ability and the expertise to implement these ideas.


Today, EPflex is one of the world’s leading OEM manufacturers of metallic components for minimally invasive medicine. With numerous patents and innovations, we rank among the pioneers and get closer to the vision of contributing with our ideas and products to secure the health of people around the world.

Rooted in the region – at home in the world

EPflex products are used in hospitals around the world. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, we are deeply rooted in the Neckar-Alb region and consider it one of our tasks to support social, charitable, sporting or cultural initiatives here in our homeland.
