About Us

Riester TODAY

Founded in 1948 in Jungingen, Germany, Rudolf Riester GmbH was acquired by Halma plc in 2007. This transformed the company from a family-owned business into being part of an international group of companies. Today, we are one of the leading manufacturing companies of diagnostic devices and vital sign parameter monitoring for primary, hospital, post-acute and long-term care across the globe. We sell and distribute our products, through an extensive network of more than 6,000 channel partners in more than 150 countries.
Our purpose drives every business decision we make, and ensures we are working towards it every day. It defines our goals to meet rising healthcare demand with an ageing population and fast lifestyle changes. At Riester, we understand the needs and challenges of our customers in their daily medical routines. Together with our partners we help healthcare providers improve the lives of millions of patients every day, everywhere. Through innovation, cutting-edge technology, and our commitment to excellence, our portfolio of diagnostic devices is setting many healthcare standards.

Our core values are: Achievement, Innovation, Empowerment and Customer Satisfaction. These are integrated into all aspects of our daily business routine.


The Riester culture is one of responsibility and accountability, which means we take ownership of our projects with a clear view of the final objective. We are providing the responsiveness to customer needs of a small business, but with the added innovation, advanced manufacturing methods and qualified distribution network of a truly global company. This, in essence, created what Riester stands for today: world-class products and services for our customers.


At Riester we foster innovation by combining decades of experience in developing and manufacturing diagnostic devices with out-of-the-box, innovative thinking. Our people are always eager to explore new technologies and create innovative applications.
