We are the UK’s leading manufacturer of high quality medical absorbents and our company has the only volume cotton wool manufacturing plant in the UK.
Products include Gamgee®, which was originally invented in 1880. Gamgee® is continually improved up to today and is the market leader in gauze and cotton tissue products.
Our Gamgee® is a greatly improved and modern version of the original gauze and cotton tissue invented in 1880 by Dr Joseph Sampson Gamgee, a pioneer in aseptic surgery, in association with Robinson Healthcare who were assigned the patent and manufactured the first product. Today, Gamgee® is still the market leader and widely used, sharing the original’s unique benefits with modern, high quality manufacturing.
