Tuttlingen is home to some 35,000 people and 400 companies specializing in medical technology, including some market leaders. Having so much of its economy based in the high-tech sector means the Swabian town has suffered little from the financial crisis. And the stiff competition has improved the companies’ performance.Two of the global market leaders located in Tuttlingen are Aesculap and KLS Martin. Aesculap is Tuttlingen’s largest employer, and it’s been manufacturing surgical instruments since 1867. KLM Martin makes lamps for operation rooms, among other products. And both companies export around the world, something they have in common with many other businesses in Tuttlingen.
