  • SPIGGLE & THEIS has a new look

SPIGGLE & THEIS Medizintechnik GmbH has stood for innovation, inspiration and passion since its founding in 1994. To ensure continued success, we have decided to further develop our marketing strategy and renew our brand's visual identity.

The relaunch of the SPIGGLE & THEIS corporate design is bringing us into a new era while continuing to bind us to the tradition of our brand – providing innovative and high-quality products that are helping to shape the future of ENT surgery.

Our new corporate design emphasizes the relationship between the emotional and the essential. A subtly redesigned logo, a more elegant typography and a more modern layout, together with emotional images, redefine our brand's clarity and authenticity.

With this in mind, our tried and tested company philosophy with its new look is committed to today's challenges.
