Slight Edge – family business since 2012.

The family business Slight Edge – also known online as medprotech – was founded in 2012 by Andre Mehl.

The founding story begins at one of the countless flea markets where Andre Mehl earned his wages selling everyday goods in Barnaul (Siberia). Because it has always been his passion to look for real bargains.

Andre Mehl had been working in sales all his life until, as luck would have it, he was given the task of finding and reselling a particular medical device.

And so, in 2012, he had the idea of founding his own company and pursuing this passion professionally. “Slight Edge” is more than just a name – it’s our promise to give you the edge and find products of outstanding quality. So that you get first-class products at a fraction of the new price without having to make any compromises.

His son Valentin Mehl joined the company a few years ago and is responsible for communicating with customers and coordinating new projects. Anna Mehl maintains contacts in Eastern Europe, is in direct contact with customers and takes care of the bookkeeping.
