Steve Ziegenhagen began his career in biomedical engineering in the 1980s. He spent time working as a bench tech before moving to a position working on-site repairing and installing central monitoring systems. This experience gave him a unique advantage when he moved to a sales position as an account executive, where he spent years managing his customers’ equipment needs. With this abundance of knowledge and experience, he and his wife, Cathy, decided to create Gopher Medical in 2012. Steve saw a need for a company that not only formed personal relationships with its customers and provided high quality equipment, but also understood both the clinical aspect and technical function of the equipment. That company is Gopher Medical, a company founded in the Midwest, striving to exceed customer expectations.
