Evolutis was founded in 1999 by a group of people highly experienced in the orthopaedic implantable device field.
The company was started by Jean-Michel Pequet and a group of associates when the existing major orthopaedic player they were working for at the time closed it’s R&D department and manufacturing facility in Roanne, France.
The initial motivation was to maintain employment for previous co-workers and to keep their valuable know-how alive and kicking.
Evolutis began with development and engineering contracts for third party companies, but very soon it started designing and developing its own brands of products.
The company concentrates on products for the hip, knee and upper limb with the R&D department developing 4 completely new products and up to 10 evolutions of existing implants / instruments per year.
