Company's 'grip' on Far East

AWARD-WINNING bandage manufacturer Gill Sweeney has received her first order to supply the Far East – less than five years after her product was launched in the UK.

Mrs Sweeney, who set up elasticated tubular bandage company Easigrip in 1999, said supplying the product to Singapore is an exciting opportunity for the family-run business.

“We already supply a few countries in Europe and last year had interest from the Middle East. It is a real coup for the company that the product has been recognised by health organisations in the Far East.”

Easigrip was approached by a wholesaler in Singapore, which requested samples last month. The first order was dispatched this week after market buyers were impressed with the quality of the bandage.

Mrs Sweeney said staff at the Warwick-based bandage company are looking forward to the prospect of manufacturing the product for the Far East.

“Because we are a small, close-knit team, our employees are enthusiastic with each new order they process,” she added.

Easigrip is available on drug tariff in the UK and is stocked by all major wholesalers. The product provides support for weak joints, sprains and strains and has the advantage of being easy to apply, comfortable to wear and being tubular does not require any pins or tape for fitting.


1. Gill Sweeney, a former pharmacist, was recently presented the Daffern Award for Enterprise and Excellence, for her success in setting up the company.
2. Easigrip is a fixed non-compression bandage manufactured to British Pharmacopoeia standards. It comprises of 100% cotton interlaced with covered rubber and requires no pins or tape to secure.
3. Easigrip was marketed at the Medica ’99 tradeshow in Germany.
