GANSHORN and SMTEC join forces
Niederlauer (D)/Nyon (CH), 21.12.2022: GANSHORN Medizin Electronic GmbH, part of the SCHILLER Group, and Sport and Médical Technologies S.A. (SMTEC) announce their strategic partnership. GANSHORN will take over the manufacturing, marketing, sales and support of SMTEC’s products with immediate effect.
SMTEC’s core equipment, EucapSys and AltiTrainer, are designed for the production of breathable gas mixtures. Dr. Stefan Ponto, Executive Vice President of GANSHORN, sees great opportunities in the partnership: “SMTEC is a world-renowned market leader in research institutes in the fields of alternative bronchial stress test methods and altitude simulation. Our goal is to leverage and continue SMTEC’s excellent reputation and specific know-how and make them available to a broader market through GANSHORN’s established distribution partnerships.”
SMTEC’s products have represented the state-of-theart in the highly specialized field of producing and dispensing breathing air mixtures for more than two decades. They are established in over 22 countries. Jean-Baptiste Menut, CEO of SMTEC, highlights the major benefits of this collaboration for his business partners: “GANSHORN’s worldwide network will provide our customers with an enhanced user experience. In particular, they will benefit from GANSHORN’s 40 years of experience in global customer support and logistics.”
The German company GANSHORN has been producing high-quality, intuitively operated measuring devices for the entire spectrum of lung function diagnostics for more than 40 years. Many of the company’s innovations and patents are industry-leading and are now considered the gold standard. With the development of the SpiroScout, a spirometer based on a calibration-free, highly accurate ultrasonic flow sensor, GANSHORN opens up new horizons: simultaneous flow, temperature and gas measurements without any noticeable flow resistance for the patient. Based on this, GANSHORN offers its customers state-of-the-art solutions for body plethysmography, CO diffusion, ergospirometry and much more.
SMTEC is a Swiss research & development company specialized in manufacturing and marketing innovating technologies for medicine and sport. Since 1998, SMTEC has sold products and solutions in 22 countries across 5 continents. Its business is based on two lines of products: EucapSys for the diagnosis of asthma by dry gas bronchial provocation and AltiTrainer for altitude simulation.
