The Medical Division was established in Filmar in the sixties when, thanks to the close cooperation with major corporations, the production of compressive bandages has started. A little later began also the manufacture of other products, such as: support bandages, fixing bandages and special elastic tapes for the production of orthopaedic products. Research and technical development have more recently brought to the production of innovative articles, like the bandages impregnated of zinc-oxyde and zync-ichthyol and, in general, medicated bandages. In the range of self-adhesive bandages, the employment of glues of the last generation has allowed to reach a very high hypoallergenic degree, as well as the complete substitution of latex in the self-adhesive bandages.
The marketing strategy is pointing towards 3 main distribution channels:
- retail, where our products are made especially for companies specialized in the distribution to pharmacies
- manufacturers of orthopaedic devices
Filmar bandages are sold in Europe, Middle and Far East, South America, Australia.
All products of Filmar Medical Division are certified UNI EN ISO 9001:2000.
