TTM - “Then - Now”

Technologie Transfer Marburg e. V. - TTM - was founded as an employment initiative in 1983. Originally, TTM focused on the refurbishing of used medical-technical equipment and the manufacturing of stainless steel products for medical use in developing countries. The company concept combines important fields such as medical care, environment, economy, and the long-term creation of jobs by means of developmental cooperation.

In accordance with the project partners’ needs, over the years TTM has developed and produced its own products, e.g. a surgical lamp with an emergency power supply and a mechanical operating table. In addition, TTM’s portfolio was broadened to include the sale of new medical-technical equipment, instruments, and consumer materials in the 1990s. As a result, it was possible to put together complete facilities – from disposable syringes to a complete operating room – for medical projects. Further, we then also started conducting projects in Asia, Eastern Europe, and South America. Deliveries for humanitarian relief complemented the range of services. TTM’s steady growth necessitated the move into its own buildings in Cölbe in 1998. Apart from the increased storage capacity, the new site provided expanded workshop facilities and enabled TTM to handle larger projects.

Today TTM considers itself a powerful service provider with a social component, which places priority on offering need-based solutions for the medical-technical market. The spectrum of services of TTM’s experienced and long-term employees ranges from consulting and procurement, production and repair to preparation for export and organization of shipping. Furthermore, installations and training sessions can be provided by TTM personnel or by local partners. The company is able to react flexibly to external influences and to quickly adapt to individual needs of the project partners. TTM equips projects comprehensively and closely coordinates budgets with the partners in order to provide need-based and practical solutions. A reliable network with strategic partnerships in the respective countries additionally contributes to the sustainable development of TTM and the projects in local regions.
