Zimmer Group – the story
Beginnings: Garage. Objective: Global player.
"Back then, we started like many dedicated founders before us: as a company working out of a garage. Albeit with the small difference that our garage was a converted cowshed," recalls Günther Zimmer. "That's where we first worked out and manufactured our first products in 1980."
Günther and Martin Zimmer, owners of the Zimmer Group, continue to work things out. However, they no longer do so alone. They are supported by a large development team in state-of-the-art offices and factory workshops for business markets around the globe. Their south German knack for technology, insatiable curiosity and pioneering spirit have brought the brothers a long way. Today, they lead the Zimmer Group together and employ over 1200 people. With turnover higher than €165 million annually. And double digit growth for several years now.
