At Coloplast we challenge ourselves every day to improve the lives of patients and consumers. We work in close Partnership with the NHS and individual healthcare professionals to support and drive the best clinical solutions and services to patients with intimate health care needs. We are passionate about delivering the ”Perfect Customer Experience” each and every day.
The Coloplast story begins back in 1954. Elise Sørensen is a nurse. Her sister Thora has just had an ostomy operation and is afraid to go out in public, fearing that her stoma might leak. Listening to her sister’s problems, Elise conceives the idea of the world’s first adhesive ostomy bag. Based on Elise’s idea, Aage Louis-Hansen, a civil engineer and plastics manufacturer, and his wife Johanne Louis-Hansen, a trained nurse, created the ostomy bag. An ostomy bag that helps Thora – and thousands of people like her – to live the life they want to lead. A simple solution that makes a difference.
Today, our business includes Ostomy Care, Continence Care, Wound & Skin Care and Urology. We operate globally and employ over 11,000 employees.
Our purpose is to make life easier for people with intimate health care needs. Once you have experienced the impact our products can have, not only on a person’s life, but for that person’s entire family, you know that you are making a difference. That’s why we have created an environment where everyone feels valued, able to develop, contribute to our mission and be proud of what we achieve.
We are listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 companies in the UK.
