Ritter Dental To Be Known As Mediquip
Since acquiring Ritter Dental in 2018, Mediquip has continued the Ritter / Gritter tradition of supporting dental practices which dates back over 60 years. From early 2024, Ritter Dental will be known as Mediquip. Leon Gritter (pictured), grandson of the Ritter / Gritter Dental founder, has directed the dental business for 30 years and continues as head of dental at Mediquip.
Mediquip is a diversified healthcare business across equipment and servicing, backed by the strength of its Australia-wide team of field service engineers.
CEO Daniel Berndt said he believes the Mediquip name is synonymous with authenticity, support and tailored solutions.
“Mediquip is known for its after-sales support and long-term partnerships with healthcare providers across Australia and sales agencies and service agencies for leading manufacturers from around the world.”
Mediquip’s proprietary asset management system MAAS supports hundreds of thousands of medical assets all over Australia. This enables efficient management of equipment inventory, with detailed service and repair history, lifecycle analysis, and helps manage compliance with Quality Assurance and Australian Council of Healthcare Standards.

Mediquip will continue to supply and service equipment for family dental practices, public sector dental hospitals and specialist clinics − including paediatric dentists, maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists and endodontists − and supply spare parts to dental technicians. And Mediquip’s field service engineers offer servicing and validation for all brands of RA systems.

Mediquip Acquires Medical Plus ANZ
Mediquip has acquired the Australia and New Zealand businesses of leading veterinary imaging provider Medical Plus. Mediquip CEO Daniel Berndt said Medical Plus’ holistic approach including sales, installation and ongoing service and technical support provides terrific synergies with Mediquip’s veterinary business MQ Vet.
“Welcoming Medical Plus Australia and New Zealand as part of Mediquip not only provides existing Medical Plus customers with a stronger support network, but also will help make world-leading veterinary imaging solutions more accessible to local vets.”
Medical Plus Group owner Andreas Winterhalter said becoming part of Mediquip across ANZ with access to Mediquip’s resources opens great opportunity to scale the local business and enhance services for veterinary professionals.
“Over the past couple of decades, Medical Plus has been delivering the latest in diagnostic imaging technology to make veterinary care and diagnosis a simpler process for vets with a range of ultrasound, x-ray, fluoroscopy, CT and MRI systems from some of the world’s leading manufacturers.
“Veterinary hospitals are enhancing their in-house advanced diagnostics with our fluoroscope, CT and MRI systems to assist with a range of applications including orthopaedic, lung, brain, spinal and trauma cases.”
Medical Plus ANZ will now operate as part of Mediquip, which launched in 1983 providing servicing of medical equipment. Mediquip’s technical team and field service engineers remain core to its position today as a diversified medical business across sales and service, with offices around Australia and support into New Zealand.
Mediquip’s veterinary business MQ Vet has built a strong reputation over several decades, particularly in oxygen generation, medical gas, anaesthesia, sterilisation, fit out and project management.
Andreas said he and his team look forward to continuing to grow Medical Plus ANZ as part of Mediquip, and will continue supporting invaluable veterinary imaging workshops.
Medical Plus entities in countries outside of Australia and New Zealand are not part of the Mediquip acquisition, and remain under Medical Plus Group.
