Description of the organization:
Vigmed is a company within Medical devices. We are situated in Helsingborg with a mission to eliminate needle stick injuries within healthcare. Our philosophy when developing the first range of products was to provide the health care workers with familiar, high quality, affordable products, which provide increased protection from needle sticks. Today, we have marketed products for intravenous and arterial catheterization first launched in 2014 – all with an automatic safety function built-in. We have launched the products in all of Western Europe and selected markets outside Western Europe. Our short term focus is to establish ourselves in the market with existing or upgraded products, and long term to innovate and launch even better solutions than what is present in the market today.
During 2017, Vigmed became part of Greiner Bio-One (GBO), which is a privately held, Austrian company within the medtech industry. Combining the innovative capabilities and “center of excellence” knowledge within Vigmed with GBOs market position and financial strength is expected to accelerate our growth even further.
