The Landanger Group is an emblematic French family business of the Medtech sector whose history began in 1947. At the time, Landanger was the European leader in orthopedic before being acquired by Johnson & Johnson for its innovative Corail Hip implant, which remains the most implanted in the world. During the transaction, the surgical instrument activity was retained by the family.
Under the management of Benoît Landanger, the founders’ grandson, the company became again a leader in surgical instrumentation. The group has created two strong brands, Landanger and Delacroix-Chevalier, with a broad product portfolio dedicated to general surgery and specialties such as cardio-thoracic, neurosurgery, endoscopy or more recently ENT, etc., including minimally invasive, reusable or disposable instruments.
