About us

History of the company

Mölnlycke was founded in 1849 as a textile manufacturer. By the early 1900s, the company had become a main supplier of gauze to Swedish hospitals. In the 1960s the focus shifted to ready-packed, single-use dressings, drapes and surgical gowns, using materials and techniques designed to reduce the spread of bacteria. In the 1980s, Mölnlycke employee Tomas Fabo invented the revolutionary Safetac® technology, which reduces pain and tissue damage in wound management. In 1989, Mepitel® was launched, the first product using Safetac®. In the early 2000s, the company brought out Mepilex®, our first antimicrobial dressing and Mölnlycke procedure trays, our customized procedure tray. By the acquisition of Sundance Inc in 2016 a new range of innovative turning and positioning systems, fluidised positioners and heel boots was incorporated as an important part of our pressure ulcer prevention portfolio.
