Leading European contract manufacturing organisation (CMO) of hip and knee orthopaedic implants

Established over 30 years ago as a family business, Marle has become a major company in the orthopaedic industry. The company provides specialised manufacturing services for the production of a wide range of hip, knee, shoulder, spine and extremities implants as well as orthopaedic instruments of the highest quality.

Covering the full scope of the manufacturing value chain and benefitting from remarkable research and development capabilities, Marle acts as a strategic partner to medical technology companies worldwide and delivers over 1 million products annually.
