In the early 1970’s, armed with little more than his tools and knowledge gained from the family business in Germany, Wolfgang Hutz arrived in Port Elizabeth and started a small manufacturing company employing six people. As the business grew, so did the number of employees who started to refer to themselves as the “Hutz Family” and the values of loyalty, devotion and pride were firmly established within the company.
Julian Hutz’s appointment as Director for both Hutz Medical and Hospi-Tec (2008) has seen the company grow from strength-to-strength not only with his innate capabilities but also in terms of global reach, with the establishment of Hutz in France (2014).
Today, the Hutz family has grown to include more than 115 employees and the family philosophy is still firmly intact. Rather than just a place of employment or a job, their employees see each other as a family, working together to meet and achieve a common goal.
Hutz Medicals’ mission is to provide high quality service systems to the health care market in South Africa and internationally. This is to be achieved by:
- Innovative product design.
- Addition of latest industry technology.
- Fair employment practice.
- Sound financial procedures.
