MELAG is an owner operated family business that has consistently focused its efforts on products for practice hygiene since the company was first founded in 1951. This focus has permitted us, as a medium-sized company, to continue to develop our products using a highly specialised development team so that they are market-ready and of a leading international standard.
We have constantly strived to enhance quality while delighting in innovation and combined this with the highest safety objectives, all of which have resulted in our position as world leader in the area of hygiene, having supplied over 450,000 devices to customers. Production is carried out exclusively by our 200 employees in Berlin in a premises of approx. 20,000 m2.
We have never seriously considered relocating production to low-wage countries, although this practice is widespread elsewhere. Other firms have often reported that while this relocation leads to savings, quality is often compromised. We have also resisted the trend to expand our range of products that are not part of our core competency: surgical hygiene. We are convinced that consistent specialisation is a decisive criterion for the quality of our products.
