About Us

We are an American-owned and operated company creating custom compression garments since 1981.

Who We Are.

Gottfried Medical is a second generation, family owned and operated Ohio corporation. The company was formed by Max Gottfried in 1981. Max believed a lower cost and longer life made-to-measure compression garment could be made without reducing its quality or compromising its efficacy.

With three employees in 1,000 square feet of space, he proved he was right, and so in 1981 Gottfried Medical, Inc. was born. His dream lives on in our 12,000 square foot manufacturing facility and corporate offices in suburban Toledo, Ohio, at 2920 Centennial Rd.


We go the extra mile to design and deliver exceptional compression garments tailored to meet the needs of your patients.

We are trusted across America,
with over 40 years of experience.

Pairing expertise with superior customer service, Gottfried Medical has provided thousands of custom compression garments across the United States and beyond, to include Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.

What We Do.

Since our inception, our business has been the design and manufacturing of medical devices. We specialize in made-to-measure compression garments, including: stockings and sleeves. The majority of these products aid in controlling numerous venous insufficiency and lymphedema.

We also manufacture compression garments specially designed to suppress and control hypertrophic scarring, resulting (most often) from serious burn injury.

Our Company Culture.

Our 30-year success story is due (in large part) to our customer service. Even today, every call Gottfried Medical receives is answered by a person. No voicemail, no buttons to push. In our newest facility, we invested in state-of-the-art fiber optics for even more efficient communication both internally and with our customers.

We have charted a modest growth every year since our inception in 1981, but it’s not just about getting bigger. As we grow, we are constantly evaluating our methods and workflow. Our newest facility provides the added space we need to accommodate the staff and equipment necessary to meet the increased demand. By design, the facility has also allowed us to streamline some of our operations, thereby increasing our efficiency, so that we may continue to provide the delivery service our customers have come to expect.
