The HARTMANN GROUP began going further for health in 1818 when industrial pioneer Ludwig von Hartmann acquired the Meebold spinning mill. His son, Paul Hartmann Sr., later founded the Paul Hartmann Bleaching, Dyeing and Dressing Company, a dressing material factory that revolutionised wound care. Our founding fathers were more than industrial pioneers, however. They instilled a drive, optimism and commitment to improving healthcare that lives on in the business to this day. Thanks to them, we are still innovating, actively seeking to improve healthcare through: wound management, disinfection, risk prevention, incontinence management and personal healthcare.
