Take care of yourself and your loved ones!

HEINE increases production of key medical instruments
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, healthcare systems around the world are coming under an unprecedented amount of strain. The demand for medical technology for intensive and primary care of critically ill patients affected by the virus is increasing.


High demand for laryngoscopes and primary diagnostic instruments
Laryngoscopes, which are needed to induce artificial ventilation, are particularly in high demand at present. But other instruments that make up basic medical equipment – such as sphygmomanometers, stethoscopes or otoscopes – are in increasing demand too, which is why HEINE’s on-site manufacturing operations are continuously producing very large quantities for global shipment.


HEINE’s production facilities are running around the clock in some cases
We are able to successfully meet this increased demand by maximising use of our machines’ capacity at our main plant in Bavaria, by cooperating closely with regional suppliers, and – above all else – thanks to the outstanding commitment of our teams in all Production divisions. But despite all our efforts and planning, some items may be subject to longer delivery times. We kindly ask for your understanding regarding this matter.


We attach a great deal of importance to our employees’ health
Employee protection is a top priority for us. We have introduced a stringent package of hygiene measures, including social distancing and – where possible – staggered working hours. Our employees are working from home wherever possible.


What we at HEINE aspire to
Ensuring the uninterrupted availability of urgently needed medical technology products and thus helping doctors and medical staff around the world in their efforts to save patients lives.
