Two business units under one Swiss roof

Geistlich is divided into two business areas:

The Swiss company, which has its headquarters in Wolhusen, Central Switzerland, plus one other Swiss site, strives for Swiss Quality. All research and development as well as production take place at its headquarters in Wolhusen. The new build extension which opened in 2019 in Wolhusen reinforces the philosophic approach “Everything under one roof” and is further affirmation of the site. Bone and collagen have been manufactured here continuously since 1899.

«Our mission revolves around five core values – at the center of our culture is trust.»
Dr. Andreas Geistlich, President of the Board of Directors

Vision & Philosophy


Geistlich stands for the values of “Driving Regeneration”, “Scientific”, “Family”, “Connecting Minds & Hands” and “Pioneering Spirit” and embodies these in its day-to-day work.

Geistlich’s passion for regeneration allows it to develop pioneering medical devices for restoring bone, cartilage and soft tissue. The company’s regenerative approach is the counterpart to repair – replacing tissue defects with, for example, artificial joints.

Scientific and well-founded

Geistlich uses a substantial part of its budget for its own research and development. The entire value-added chain is under Geistlich’s control at its site in Central Switzerland. The company places the greatest value on high quality products with scientifically proven safety and efficacy. Geistlich biomaterials are documented in about 1,400 scientific publications that demonstrate their efficacy. Numerous internal and external audits ensure the high quality standards.   

Geistlich’s vision

Geistlich’s goal is to continue strengthening its market leadership in regenerative dentistry and further develop its product portfolio in the area of regenerative technologies. To achieve this, the company is planning new regenerative products as well as new application areas and techniques for its established products. The vision that drives us is «The Regeneration Company.»
