The company Ritter GmbH, founded in 1965 by Franz Ritter and based in Schwabmünchen, began its business activities as a supplier to the injection moulding parts industry. Gradually, the company developed its own product groups, so that today it manufactures and markets almost exclusively own-branded products.

In the manufacturing areas of cartridge systems, laboratory equipment and construction materials, Ritter GmbH has been setting quality standards for over 40 years. In February 1998, the company achieved DIN ES ISO 9001 certification, which was a relatively logical development. In November 2001, the company was awarded the OS certificate in accordance with DIN EN 46001 and EU Directive 93/42/EWG, Annex II, Section 3.

From the product idea through development using CAD facilities, in-house construction of tools and moulds and on to manufacturing, quality assurance, logistics and marketing, everything is handled by a single company. With customised complete solutions, Ritter GmbH is enjoying success in both the European and the American market. In 1994, a plant was established in Jackson, Mississippi, as RK Manufacturing. Localised production also guarantees competitive capability and market success here.

Dosage needles and dosage cartridges and accessories are a further product group in the high-quality Ritter GmbH manufacturing programme. Thanks to a philosophy of quality without compromise and far-sighted planning, Ritter GmbH - which today employs some 200 staff - has set a course for a successful future.
