The family business started out when Anton Hipp started to make surgical scissors at home. After completion of the surgery-mechanic-master and after constructional extension of new production rooms to the residential house, on 01.07.1970 the single firm Anton Hipp was founded. The one-man company made a small assortment of surgical scissors for renowned Tuttlingen medical technology companies. The high quality standard and the reliability quickly made the name Anton Hipp very well known . Soon, the range of surgical scissors could be extended to all areas of application.
In 1976, it was already produced with six employees and Dieter Hipp, son of Anton Hipp , began training as a surgery mechanic in his parents' company. In 1985 he passed the Surgery Mechanic Master exam.
In this year also the company was converted into a GmbH and the second son, Gerhard Hipp, took over as a graduated business economist the commercial activities of the enterprise.
From then on, existing export relations were extended to all continents. The manufacturing program, which now includes more than 400 models, was focused on the sale of surgical instruments in the fields of neurosurgery, aesthetic and plastic surgery as well as ENT surgery
