HEINE was founded in 1946 by Helmut A. Heine, a physicist and passionate scientist. His goal was simple - he wanted to develop and build the best quality diagnostic tools for medicine. Products that would not only be reliable and durable, but offer new and better diagnostic capabilities for both physician and patient.
For this reason, HEINE Optotechnik has sought to work with doctors and universities from the beginning. However, Helmut A. Heine was convinced that the key factor in achieving his goals would be to remain as independent a company as possible.
For 70 years, this philosophy has been the foundation of the company's success. And it remains today.
HEINE Optotechnik is still an independent family company that makes decisions based on long-term benefits for its products, customers and the company. From the very beginning, the company constantly invests in its own production facilities to achieve a high level of vertical integration. This allows you to control the manufacturing process at almost every step - from the first idea to the finished tool. The company continues to invest heavily in the development of its products and still works closely with medical professionals around the world to ensure that the products produced are not only of the highest quality, but also give the most reliable and accurate diagnosis. HEINE Optotechnik is constantly striving to develop and improve its own processes, resulting in new ways of more efficient production and higher quality standards.
