Ever since Maquet's founding in Germany in 1838, it has helped hospitals with innovative products such as the first motorized operating table. A Maquet table was used for the first heart transplant surgery in 1967, in South Africa. Firsthand understanding of clinical challenges and continuous optimization of its products established Maquet as a leading provider of medical systems.
Today Maquet is a product brand within Getinge Group. The Maquet brand provides a broad range of products and innovative treatment solutions and infrastructure functions for extremely demanding hospital departments, including operating rooms, hybrid operating rooms, catheter laboratories and intensive care units as well as intra- and inter-hospital patient transportation.

Leadership the Getinge Way
As an organization, we strive to gain high performance from all of our employees.
We focus on their development and growth so that our employees can achieve the expectations of the company as well as their own personal aspirations. The Getinge Group has established a framework of four behavioral cornerstones that are linked to the success of the overall organization. Each cornerstone then has two associated competencies to serve as the fundamentals which define the performance assessment activities of our Talent Management processes. The competency framework is used to ensure that the most suitable candidates are recruited to executive positions, that the individuals’ potential is identified early on, that employees understand what is expected of them and that they advance by way of structured career planning.
