Company history

The grandfather of the current company owner, Siegfried Martin, trained as a surgical mechanic at the Aesculap company in Tuttlingen from 28 April 1908 to 24 April 1911.

He received his master craftsman’s certificate on 10 February 1924.

In 1927, he set up his own business in a small building An der Steig in Wurmlingen and started producing surgical scissors on a small scale. During the Second World War, production was temporarily suspended but resumed after the war in around 1946. The father of the current company owner, Siegfried Helmut Martin, began his apprenticeship in his father’s company when production resumed after the Second World War. He obtained his master craftsman’s certificate on 29 June 1957, then took over the company. In 1960, he bought a plot of land in Weilheimer Str. in Wurmlingen, on which he built a new production building to house various mechanical grinding machines, and moved in in 1968. Surgical scissors were manufactured here with a fluctuating workforce of 15 to 25 people.

The company was run as a sole proprietorship until 1979 when it became “siema Siegfried Martin GmbH”.

In 1981, the company also began producing tungsten carbide scissors. The present owner of the company, Jochen Martin, started his apprenticeship in 1988 in his father’s company, acquired his master craftsman’s certificate on 17 June 1994 and took over the company as managing director in 1996. In 1996, a quality management system was established, albeit without certification.

In 2003, an extension was added to the existing production building to accommodate the CNC machinery. In 2014, the attic of the existing production building was converted to accommodate the administration’s increasing need for space.

In 2017, the company was certified according to DIN EN ISO 13485:2012.

One year later, on 30 November 2018, the quality management system was converted to ISO 13485:2016. Certification according to Regulation (EU) 2017/745 was another milestone for siema Siegfried Martin GmbH. For siema Siegfried Martin GmbH, this represents an investment in the future.
