Who we are?

We are the Leader

We have built our success through openness and reciprocal trust. Our customers and Partners value us primarily for our highly ethical business culture and the relationality of our employees.

Our business partnership is based on 3 fundamental values: people, responsibiliy and knowledge.

What are the values we profess?


You can relay on us, because we can relay on each other.

In our work, it is extremely important that we strengthen each other, not weaken each other. We know that in order for others to be healthy, we ourselves need to be a healthy, smoothly working organism, and sometimes we encounter situations that cannot be overcome alone.

You can relay on Urtica, because in Urtica everyone can relay on the other person.



Less pain, more life, that’s also on our hands.

It is not just another job, it is a mission. A sense of responsibility for a patient in need is the foundation of all our values and the driving force behind our development, meticulousness and tenacity. It is also a shared responsibility for ourselves.

We know that each of us needs to feel the support of the other employees.



The more we know, the more efficiently we can help.

This market is very demanding, complex and never stops evolving. To be effective in what we do, we cannot stop learning and expanding our knowledge and applying it wisely.

The more we know, the smarter we act, the more people we are able to help.
