“Every business arises from the dream of one single individual, from his vision of an opportunity that others have not seen yet. Only if he is able to inspire and guide others, will his vision turn into an Enterprise worthy of the name.”

Our history

Francehopital is the story of three generations of men who created, developed and transformed over the last few decades the original structure of a small trading company founded by Julius Peroni to support his family during the hard times surrounding the Second World War. A multi-ethnic culture, the courage to face challenges and stubborn faith in a better future: Julius imparted these distinguishing values to his newborn company when it was taking its first steps in the hospital fittings market. His son Günther, who took the command at a young age, had a positive impact on the company by reversing the original entrepreneurial perspective. Instead of developing a business strategy based on the company‘s search for markets for its products, he began exploring international markets in order to offer targeted solutions for the complex problems of hospital logistics. In 2005, the third generation of the Peroni family, in the person of young Gunnar, took the helm to implement a new structure for the company. He outlined a new identity of the company, strengthening its position on the world market and maturing that healthy respect for competitors that lets you learn from those who know how to move faster and better than others, and then turn the priceless wisdom that comes from recognizing one’s own mistakes into great opportunities for growth.

Recognized worldwide

Francehopital always had a vocation for export, both because of its geographical position and its culture: our company is located in Alsace, France and South Tyrol, Italy.
