Activa Healthcare, the award-winning market leader in compression hosiery and wound care, is transforming! From July this year, the company will become known as L&R.
Whilst the name is new, the relationship isn’t. Activa Healthcare has been a part of L&R since 2008. L&R has a proud history of 160 years’ experience in wound dressings and medical devices and shares the ethics and values that Activa was founded upon.
The most obvious change will be the L&R logo and red and green brand colours, but the most important change will be the extensive portfolio of products that will now be offered to customers as part of a global company.
Products from L&R such as Debrisoft, ReadyWrap and Flivasorb have already been launched successfully in the UK; products which have been developed in L&R’s research and development laboratories.
‘While the company name is changing,’ says Simon Mangan, Managing Director at L&R in the UK, ‘our focus on customers, our core values and the spirit of our people will remain the same. After all, L&R has owned Activa for the last eight years and all the things that customers like about us will feel the same. We’ll still be driven by the same principles and we’ll continue to operate as usual and, of course, we’ll still have our much loved Activa British Standard and ActiLymph hosiery. Additionally, we’ll be able to offer our customers a wider choice of product solutions as a global brand – which is really exciting.’
