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 80 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.

The merger of Celtic SMR with OR Technology has sealed a long-standing partnership that will benefit all veterinary and human medicine customers in the UK and Ireland. Celtic has very good market expertise and a functioning distribution network in the UK, which perfectly complement the business and technology portfolio of OR Technology.

OR Technology is now a leading provider of customised system solutions for human and veterinary medicine, security and industry.


Sustainability strategy of OR Technology

Developing sustainably means considering environmental aspects on an equal basis with economic and social aspects. We are sustainably committed to our corporate responsibility - as an employer, within the society and regarding our economic as well as our environmental liabilities. Our aim is to combine these pillars of sustainability.

Developing our company in a sustainable way and shaping the working environment of our employees in a noticeable way are challenges that we face every day anew. Leaving as small an "ecological footprint" as possible is our ongoing aspiration.

OR Technology promotes and implements the following sustainability initiatives:

Our facility in Rostock uses green power provided by Naturstrom.

We exchanged our air conditioning with a heat recovering ventilation system to reduce energy loss in winter.

We motivate our employees to use bicycles instead of the car by either subsidising the purchase of a bike or providing company bicycles.

Mineral water in returnable bottles from the region is offered free of charge to employees.

Free organic coffee is available on each floor.

Organic fruit (mostly from the region) is delivered every week and offered free of charge.

Organic lunches are provided three times a week and subsidised for staff.

Our headquarters in Rostock is bright and friendly. The building is close to the water's edge and offers us a magnificent view of the Warnow at any time of year.

In order to create a sporty balance to the daily work routine, there are various offers financed by the company, such as table tennis, yoga, badminton, squash, bowling and courses in the leisure centre or fitness studio, which can be used by the employees.

We offer free weekly massages by professional physiotherapists during working hours.

Participation in the annual Rostock company run is made possible and paid for.

Further training opportunities are possible and welcome according to need. English lessons are offered weekly within working hours and free of charge.

OR Technology offers its employees flexitime and a flexible working time model. This makes it easier to reconcile work and family life.

In order to strengthen and promote the team spirit between the employees, various events such as a summer party, an excursion during the Hanse Sail and a christmas party are offered every year.

OR Technology has been training apprentices for many years. Our trainees of today are often our employees of tomorrow.

Sustainability impacts our fields of development and production. Our aim is to repair and develop equipment, not to replace it immediately.

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

OR technology is fulfilling its social responsibility. We have already been involved several times in helping refugees with medical equipment and donations.

Furthermore, local social projects such as the Rostocker Tafel, the women's shelter, the Stadtmission or Mike Möwenherz are supported every year.

We support the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry through an honorary position on the Foreign Trade Committee.

Three raised beds adorn our terrace and our employees with green thumbs transform them into flowering hotspots
