Arjo the story
Arjo was founded in 1957 by Swedish entrepreneur Arne Johansson and was given the name Arjo using the first two initials of the founder’s first and last name. Arjo originally manufactured components and machine parts for other manufacturers, including medical devices. Arne Johansson was one of the first to understand the need for bathing and transfer equipment in healthcare and elderly care as well as for improved ergonomics for healthcare professionals. He developed a series of innovative products that could meet these needs in Sweden. Shortly thereafter, Arjo started selling its products outside Sweden.
Arjo was first listed on the Stockholm and London stock exchanges in 1993. At that time, Arjo had about 1,100 employees and generated sales of approximately SEK 1,300 M. In 1995, Arjo was acquired by Getinge which then expanded its product offering to include medical beds, patient lifts and bathing systems. Arjo thus became the foundation of Getinge’s Extended Care business area
In 2016, the Board of Directors of Getinge announced its intention to divide Getinge into two operations, Getinge and Arjo, to give each company the best conditions for developing and realizing their potential.
Today, Arjo is a market-leading supplier of medical devices and solutions that improve quality of life for people with reduced mobility and age-related health challenges.
