Over 30 years of experience in research, development and manufacturing in the fields of contraception and sexual healthcare
The company was founded in 1987 by Gertrud Halberstadt, Dr. med. Knut Hoffmann and Martin Kessel and operated until 1997 as a company of the Pro Familia association under the name PROFAMILIA Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co KG in Frankfurt am Main.
In 1997, CEO Martin Kessel took over the shares of the NGO members and continued the activities under the name KESSEL Marketing & Vertriebs GmbH. Since November 1999 the company is located in Mörfelden-Walldorf near Frankfurt am Main.
In May 2014, the company name and corporate objectives were adapted to the changed business activities: Research, development, production and distribution of medical products for contraception and sexual healthcare will continue under the name KESSEL medintim GmbH.
In April 2016 the company moved into the new business premises at Nordendstr. 82-84. Together with Distler Medizintechnik, the company has now become even more efficient and resource-saving.
In June 2019 the company DISTLER Medizintechnik GmbH merged with KESSEL medintim GmbH. KESSEL medintim GmbH has thus become the legal successor of DISTLER Medizintechnik GmbH.
Since 2005, the company has been a certified manufacturer of medical devices according to CE Annex II of 92/43/EEC and EN ISO 13485:2016. The focus remains on the development and production of medical devices for contraception and sexual healthcare.
The main focus is to develop solutions that are in demand and sought after by people. Each of the company's products is developed with personal commitment and "heart and soul".
Production is almost exclusively in Germany. The medical products are sold in over 45 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Africa and North America.
