Ilcon GmbH, based at 57258 Freudenberg, is a new name in the market of actuator providers. As of May 01, 2009, and with the Bremen NWI Group as a strong investor, Ilcon acquired the Medical/Care division of OKIN, Gummersbach, Germany, within the framework of an asset purchase.
Upon execution of the contract, all rights to the production of the actuators used in medical products, among other things, were assigned to ILCON, including all pertinent patents, certificates, tools and assembly lines in Hungary.
We therefore have a wide range of tried and tested products of single and double actuators in various series and variants and for flexible and customer-specific solutions.
At the same time, and under the direction of the former ex-OKIN managing director, Michael Hüppe, other former OKIN staff were hired who with their many years of experience in development, production and consultancy form a team that is really competent when it comes to medical-product actuators.
By acquiring all OKIN Medical products and engaging in their development, ILCON very deliberately has embarked upon a course of specialisation. After all, the requirements placed upon actuators and systems for medical products become greater each and every year. To make manufacturers meet their customers’ requirements in terms of safety and reliability in hospitals, healthcare facilities and medical care, the experienced Engineering Center in
Bünde and Freudenberg was integrated.
It is ILCON’s objective to look for solutions with its customers and to find them within the framework of new concepts. Just as its motto says:
Integrated Linear-Actuator Concepts.
