Innovative Swiss Medtech Worldwide

SCHILLER was founded in 1974 by Alfred E. Schiller. Starting in a four-room flat as a one-man business, the company has become a successful group with about 1400 employees, 30 subsidiaries and a global sales network. Today, SCHILLER is a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of devices for cardiopulmonary diagnostics, rescue and patient monitoring as well as software solutions for the medical industry.

For 50 years, SCHILLER has been committed to the fight against sudden cardiac death. The success story began with the launch of a handy emergency electrocardioscope. In one stroke, the company not only made a name for itself, but also set new standards. Thanks to suitable therapies and rehabilitation measures, physicians can thus protect people of all age groups from sudden cardiac death.

As success grew, so did the product portfolio: devices such as blood pressure monitors and spirometers enhanced the range, and complete diagnostic stations and monitoring devices started being produced for clinics and medical practices. Similarly, the production sites and competence centres also expanded. In addition to the headquarters in Baar (Switzerland), a competence centre was established in Wissembourg (France), specialising in the fields of defibrillation and monitoring.

Another competence centre opened in Graz (Austria): The company medilog became part of the SCHILLER Group. This new alliance allowed ­SCHILLER to acquire additional know-how in the field of high-end long-term ECG. The next major step was achieved through the alliance with GANSHORN, a company specialising in the field of pulmonary function diagnostics, which is now also a part of the SCHILLER Group.
