This year (2015) we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Irish company. Founded in 1995 in Dundalk, Ireland, as a subsidiary of the US based “Boston Brace International Inc.”. The Irish operation became the European manufacturing facility for the Boston range of Spinal Orthotic products. The company was set up to service the growing European customer base for these products and to expand upon that success by offering faster turnaround times and central fabrication manufacture of “custom” made orthosis. The initial customer base has grown considerably since those early years and we now manufacture and supply our Spinal range of products to more than 20 countries.
In 2004, the company was purchased from the US owners by the “Camp Group” which consisted of Tielle S.P.A. (Italy), Prim S.A. (Spain), Camp Scandinavia AB (Sweden) and Basko Healthcare B.V (Netherlands). This was a strategic move which allowed the company to have the leverage of these larger distribution partners to increase sales and manufacturing activity. The company name changed to BBE Healthcare Ltd at that time.
In 2010, the company was purchased outright by Camp Scandinavia AB and became Allard Support UK Ltd. Since 2010, the company has expanded in sales revenue, number of employees and physical size. In addition to the original spinal manufacturing activity of the company, there is now another side to the business in Ireland which consists of the distribution of the “Allard” range of products in the UK market with a dedicated sales team in the UK.
Allard Support UK Ltd continues to grow and develop under the umbrella of Camp Scandinavia, benefiting from support in terms of Marketing, product development etc.
It has been a privilege to have been with the company from the beginning and to have worked with a great team of people, supplying world class products to patients around the world. I would like to thank our customers, employees and suppliers for their cooperation and support through the years and I look forward to many more years of growth and development. We will continue to build our company on world class innovative products, made to the highest quality standards and supported by exceptional customer care and product education, with the patient always at the centre.
