The original facility was founded by John Kemmler in 1955 at a time when orthotic and prosthetic services were not readily available to the area, and operated as a proprietorship. The business was purchased in 1969 by Siegfried Jesswein C.P.O., and a corporation was formed under the name of Jesswein Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc. and continued its operation until February of 1975. At this time, Edward L. Teter C.P. purchased the corporation initially changing the name to Teter and Jesswein, Inc. and then to the current name of Teter Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc. In 1976, Teter Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. opened their first satellite office in Petoskey, Michigan and in 1986-1987 a second and third satellite office was opened in Grayling and Gaylord, Michigan. In 1991, the corporation was purchased by Michael L. Teter, C.P.O. Teter experienced rapid growth under the hand of Mike Teter, opening many more offices in Northern Michigan and Western Michigan; including, Ludington, Cadillac, Manistee, Big Rapids, Alpena, Cheboygan, Alma, Grand Rapids and Greenville. Todd Stone C.P.O., a longtime employee of Teter, purchased the company in 2013. Today, Teter Orthotics and Prosthetics serves over 50 counties with more than 20 offices throughout the state.
