BSN medical was founded in 2001 as a joint venture between Beiersdorf AG and Smith & Nephew, with products in wound care, fracture management, lymphology, vascular and compression therapy.
This initial venture ended when a private equity group acquired the company in 2006. In late 2012, the company was acquired again, this time by EQT VI, a Swedish private equity group. Over the years, we have also made a number of our own acquisitions, with the aim to improve our offer in defined therapeutic areas.
From January 2016, BSN medical in Australia and New Zealand has established a locally owned and managed business. We are excited about our new journey, and respect and appreciate the efforts of all those who have helped us to reach this point. For more information about BSN medical, please visit our global site.
