Since its establishment in 1973, Schölly has evolved from a single-product manufacturer to a vendor of highly sophisticated visualisation systems for both medical and industrial applications. Today, more than 500 employees work in 11 locations in eight countries for the Schölly group. All products made by Schölly are targeted at making concealed structures visible and accessible for non-destructive/minimally invasive treatment, using such technologies such as micro-optics, fiberoptics and electronics.

Mirko Beiser, Chief Financial Officer of Schölly Fiberoptic GmbH said:
“Schölly is headquartered in Germany with subsidiaries operating in Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Hong Kong, India and Malaysia. We engaged Kreston to prepare our consolidated financial statements and the work is excellently co-ordinated. We have total confidence in the Kreston partners and the quality and reliability of their work. Our international subsidiaries enjoy the benefit of partners’ local knowledge which delivers outstanding cohesion to the overall project”.
