DRIVE MEDICAL – your advantage.

The name of Endres stands for the development and production of high quality bath lifts. Since being taken over by DRIVE MEDICAL, the product range has been continually expanded.

We specialise in bath/shower, WC and mobility products. DRIVE MEDICAL products are manufactured in our own factories in Germany, the USA, Romania and by other carefully selected suppliers.

Our products are used for home care and in hospitals, nursing homes and retirement homes – all over Europe.

 

Our strategy consists in offering products and services which meet the requirements and needs of our customers in the specialist retail trade and those of people in need of help and guaranteeing them a full service care system.

Our committed, trained team makes this possible.

DRIVE MEDICAL – your reliable partner.

2018 One CEO for Drive DeVilbiss Germany

Oliver Niemann, longtime Managing Director of DeVilbiss Healthcare GmbH in Mannheim, takes over the group management in Germany including the company Drive Medical in Isny. The companies should remain legally independent. The goal is to unify the processes at both sites to allow distributors to benefit from the combined product portfolio and service.

2017 Introduction of a new product range: Anti-decubitus

From now on, Drive DeVilbiss offers a sophisticated range of anti-decubitus products. Long established in the US and UK, this innovative portfolio has been developed in collaboration with external specialists and professionals specifically for the European market.

2016 Two strong brands grow together

Drive Medical and DeVilbiss Healthcare grow together. The two companies will become Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare. By integrating DeVilbiss Healthcare, we are expanding our product offering to include oxygen and sleep therapy.

2015 The company group is growing

Through the acquisitions of DeVilbiss healthcare and Park House Healthcare, drive has acquired two established brands in the industry and consistently expands its product portfolio. These acquisitions underline the growth plans of drive medical worldwide and offers opportunity to expand its customer base and product offering.

2014 Extensive product range

Targeted expansion of the product range continues to grow Drive Medical. New products in the existing product groups complete the offer and with the introduction of the oxygen saving valves in 2014, Drive is starting in the field of oxygen therapy. Thus, Drive Medical offers an even more extensive product range and continues to be the strong partner for specialist retailers.

2013 A course for growth

Drive Medical continues on a course for growth and is consequently guided by these needs while continuously developing new products which respond even better to the market's expectations. Forward-thinking visions and vibrant philosophies - those are what guide Drive Medical.
