About Stryker UK Ltd

Helping people lead more active and satisfying lives by making healthcare better is the noble aim of Stryker UK, one of the world’s leading medical-device companies.
Stryker UK manufacture reconstructive, medical, surgical, neurotechnology and spine products available in over 100 countries around the world.
The company began in 1941 when Dr Homer Stryker, a US orthopaedic surgeon, found that certain medical products weren’t meeting his patients’ needs - so he invented new ones and set up a business to produce them.

Today, led with integrity and accountability by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kevin A Lobo, Stryker UK have offices in the US, Canada, Latin America, Europe and across Asia-Pacific.
Stryker UK is based in Newbury, Berkshire. The company is driven by integrity, accountability, people and performance. Doing the right thing and doing what they say they’ll do are fundamental beliefs.

Integrity is everything. One employee reported that, at his interview, his line manager made it clear that the patient is at the centre of everything the company does. In sales, that might even mean admitting a competitor product is clinically better for the patient.
