In 1990, Belimed AG was founded as a joint venture between Belinox, a company with a long history of fine craftsmanship, precision engineering and stainless steel products, and Gehrig AG, a producer of high-quality dishwashers for restaurants and hotels. 
The vision of the Swiss founders of Belimed was to combine the world-class stainless steel workmanship of Belinox with the washer engineering know-how of Gehrig to deliver innovative new products for the medical industry. Through a series of acquisitions, Belimed’s product portfolio expanded into the reliable, robust, customer-centric collection of washer-disinfectors, sterilizers and sterile processing equipment and expert service and support to back up all of our product solutions.

Belimed has grown to be a global provider of sterile processing equipment with distribution in over 80 countries worldwide.
