100% family-owned since it was founded in 1864, Swiss company Sigvaris is the global market leader in the manufacture of medical compression garments. For about one hundred years, Sigvaris produced ‘rubber-elastic textiles’, sold both in Switzerland and abroad.
From 1958 to 1960, the company collaborated with Dr. Karl Sigg and developed a medical compression stocking to improve venous function and relieve venous-related conditions.
The product portfolio was expanded in 2009 when Well Being and Sports lines were added to the main Medical line. Well Being stockings have a preventive function and relieve the early symptoms of leg conditions. While Sports products improve athlete performance and recovery time.
Customers around the world include: pharmacies, chemists, orthopaedic and medical specialist stores, as well as doctors and hospitals. The Group produced over 8 million pairs of stockings in 2016 and generated revenue of around CHF 250 million.
