Pioneering since 1849
Healthcare professionals and their care for patients have always been our focus. Right from our early days as a textile manufacturer supplying gauze to Swedish hospitals.
Throughout our history, we’ve been driven by the desire to find better ways to deliver care – and support healthcare professionals.
We were the first to mass-produce wound dressings and the first to offer single-use drapes, tubular bandages and powder-free coated surgical gloves, enhancing performance in the operating room.
We’re the company behind Safetac® – the revolutionary soft silicone-based technology used in many of our wound care dressings such as Mepitel® and Mepilex® that results in less pain for patients.
We’re still innovating today – in-house, through partnerships with others and through acquisitions. And now we’re leading the way in preventing pressure ulcers, with prophylactic dressings and devices for turning and re-positioning patients.
