In 1994, Frank Dorer founded the company in Umkirch under the name baho Medizintechnik GmbH. The experience he had already gathered working in endoscope production drove him to focus his knowledge on the design and manufacture of endoscopes.
We were able to enter the US market in the years 1996 – 2000 with the FDA's 510(k) approval. In 2003, the company headquarters was moved to a larger building across the street. Since then the company's address has been Am Laidhölzle 1 in Umkirch.
In 1998 baho Medizintechnik GmbH was first certified DIN EN ISO 13485 and ISO 9001. We are proud of the quality of our products for medical and industrial applications. You can download the certificates on this page.
Merger with the company Rudolf, based in Tuttlingen, to form Rudolf-InnoView GmbH. The merger was used to optimally combine instruments from the fields of minimally invasive surgery and endoscopy. Bringing the two companies together also enabled optimising their market presence.
Since 2011 we have been operating as an independent company again, under the name InnoView GmbH, in order to allow us to act autonomously and concentrate fully on new ideas and innovations.
In 2018 we opened our new site in Eichstetten to ensure we are ready for sustainable expansion. Our new offices and production halls take us a step further toward market leadership in the high-quality endoscopy products segment.
