Vision, quality and growth - our foundation for a lasting and beneficial relationship

The story of OR Technology is closely connected with the development of medical and industrial technology over the past three decades.

Even if the markets have changed globally during that period, innovation, quality, competence and cooperation are solid components of our company's philosophy. A visionary strategy, innovative ideas, consistent quality policies, investments in development and service, as well as the strategic set-up of an international network of distributors enabled our company to grow from a supplier of medical practice administration systems within Germany to a software system provider operating around the world. 

By now our team consists of more than 60 highly qualified and experienced programmers, IT specialists and experts in the fields of marketing and sales. To maintain lasting business relations on an international level, our staff prove their intercultural and technical expertise on a daily basis and now communicate with our customers and suppliers in no less than eight languages. They are a key to our success and our most valuable asset. OR Technology is now a leading provider of customised system solutions for human and veterinary medicine, security and industry.


Our Sustainability Policy

„We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there.“

Charles F. Kettering, American industrialist (1876 – 1958)


OR Technology has been producing digital X-ray technologies and developing image management software for nearly 30 years. Our in-house solutions are used in private practices, radiology departments and hospitals all over the world. In order for our company to grow in a sustainable manner, we must pay attention to environmental as well as economic and social considerations. We acknowledge our corporate responsibility to balance and promote these three pillars of sustainability. 

We rise to the challenge of developing our company sustainably and improving the working environment of our employees on a daily basis. Our goal is to reduce our ecological footprint to the greatest extent possible.


OR Technology promotes and implements the following sustainability initiatives:

Our facility in Rostock uses green power provided by Naturstrom.

Our buildings are not air-conditioned. In the winter, heat recovery ventilation reduces heat loss and improves energy efficiency.

We encourage our employees to rely less on personal vehicles for travel to and from work. OR Technology contributes to the purchase of employee bicycles and has company bikes available for use.

Free bottled water in reusable bottles from a local company is available for all employees

Local, organically grown fruits are available for free once a week

Our company headquarters in Rostock are bright and have a friendly atmosphere. The building is located near the banks of the Warnow River and provides a wonderful view of the landscape all year round.

Company employees have free access to wide array of sports and fitness activities including yoga, badminton and squash, as well as fitness studio classes.

Professional development is encouraged and supported where possible. Weekly English classes are offered.

OR Technology offers its employees flexible working hours to improve work-family balance.

Interactions between employees in various departments are encouraged. Annual events such as a summer party, a Christmas party and a trip to Hanse Sail further strengthen bonds throughout the company

OR Technology has an active apprenticeship program. Today‘s apprentices may be tomorrow‘s employees.

OR Technology leads an expertise network with local partners in many countries worldwide. These partnerships promote quick support and competent service for all customers, regardless of location.

OR Technology demonstrates social responsibility. In 2015 the company donated medical equipment and funds for refugees.

We follow the principals of sustainability in research and development as well as in production. Our goal is to repair and modernize equipment rather than immediately replace it.

As a globally active company, we offset the CO2 emissions of all business flights of our employees via the platform www.atmosfair.de.

OR Technology is proud of the many corporate sustainability initiatives already implemented within our company. We have chosen to make the overarching responsibility underlying these activities a central tenant of our company policy. Sustainability initiatives must be regularly assessed, modified, redefined and, if necessary, adapted to new circumstances. We accept today‘s challenge for a better tomorrow.
