About Us

“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 immediately after World War 2. 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.

Each product design and personalized customer solution stem from thorough research of client needs. Constant customer feedback allows us to collect requests and wishes, generating an ongoing improvement process of our products, which are then made according to healthcare‘s highest standards of hygiene, safety and durability. Our R&D department continuously looks for ways of solving workplace related issues or problems. Very often this leads to “almost tailor-made” solutions.

This constant exchange between us and the healthcare world is indeed very exciting and always interesting.

Countries where FH exports: updated May 2020

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. Francehopital has a rich and varied production, depending on functionality: from trolleys for personalized medication distribution to those for linen change in the wards; trolleys for operating rooms, for practices, for emergency rooms… it is a lineup that keeps growing to this day, adding new models and innovative solutions.
For us the value of excellence comes also from the ability to listen to all needs of accuracy and efficiency coming from hospital wards, the practical needs of our clients and, most of all, the needs of single physicians, nurses and technicians from all countries that are going to use our products.
