About Us

Richard Wolf is a leading manufacturer of technologies for endoscopic diagnosis and therapy. For more than 100 years, we have delivered solutions that enhance surgical results, improve patient outcomes, and pave the way for new, groundbreaking procedures. From the earliest stages of R&D to the moment one of our instruments is packed and shipped to a facility, we are driven by the spirit of excellence.

Richard Wolf instrumentation and endoscopic imaging platforms are designed for a broad range of minimally invasive surgical specialties. Since our founding in 1906, we have fostered an ongoing dialog with respected surgeons around the world, which informs every product we bring to market.

Designed and crafted in Germany, Richard Wolf instrumentation has long been recognized for its exceptional quality. Our optical systems, flexible endoscopes, and precision stainless-steel instruments have been a staple of our portfolio from the very beginning.

Richard Wolf is an international group with 14 subsidiaries, 130 distributors, and more than 1,500 employees around the globe. Owned by the Richard and Annemarie Foundation, the company is not beholden to the interests of private ownership or stockholders – only to the advancement of endoscopic medicine.

Richard Wolf Medical Instruments Corporation, the largest of Richard Wolf GmbH’s international subsidiaries, is located just north of Chicago and has been serving the US market since 1972. Our corporate headquarters is home to manufacturing, assembly, sales, marketing, repair, customer service, and administrative teams.
