Our History

Joe Grimm founded Grimm Scientific Industries. After years of developing temperature controlled medical devices, Joe met Paul Spear, the Head Athletic Trainer at Marietta College, in 1983. He introduced Joe to the cold and warm systems used in sports medicine, which were far behind the technology he was making for clinical laboratories.

Because of his passion to improve athletic performance, Joe then established Grimm Scientific and developed the PARATherm product line. Later, in 1987, he met Skip Vosler, Head Athletic Trainer at Ohio University, who helped develop the CRYOTherm and CRYOPress product lines.

Grimm Scientific Industries is based in Marietta, Ohio, where we design, engineer, and manufacture all our products.
