Evolution as a red thread
Much has happened since Tytex started out in the middle of Jutland in 1971. But still the keyword in the history of Tytex is evolution. Not only in terms of production methods and products, but also when it comes to the company itself which has lived through a continuous progress through the last many years.
Tytex was founded in 1971 by the Thygesen family who wanted to make a company that was always at the forefront of development. The key to this was a new and revolutionary production method which allowed the product to be knitted completely in one manufacturing process.
In 1973 a successful cooperation started with a market leading pad manufacturer to develop and produce fixation pants for babies and incontinent adults. Taking over the patent rights from an American company in 1979 was a further milestone in development of incontinence briefs.
Tytex has expanded many times in its evolution; the first overseas production plant was set up in Ireland in 1984; then Tytex Inc. was added in the USA in 1989; Tytex Slovakia in 2001; and Tytex Thailand in 2008. An essential part of the company's success has been its ability to keep production costs to a minimum, and today Tytex's production is consolidated and concentrated in high-efficient facilities in Slovakia.
Sales offices were added in Germany in 1993 (Tytex GmbH) and in UK in 2012. Today Tytex has sales divisions located in Germany and USA in addition to the Sales Headquarter in Denmark.
Tytex is a modern and healthy company which has produced continued good results and progress, in spite of the various global financial crises. The company has been able to adjust to evolving market trends due to its ability to continually change and adapt to new challenges. As a result, Tytex is considered a reliable partner by its customers who are typically the largest companies in their sphere.
Our focus and goal is to develop products that can actively help improve the user's quality of life. With our in-house R&D department, we are able to create value both as a professional and experienced private label partner and as a supplier of sales and ready-to-market product concepts (brands) for distributors.
Tytex is owned by the Danish investment cooperation Zefyr. At present we employ 550 people around the world.
The really unique features of our garments
The textile will adapt to the body shape at all times ensuring that the product will provide the necessary compression needed for recovery, as well as the best possible comfort at all times during prolonged wear.
Targeted compression and support means that our partners' products are designed to provide the necessary compression and support exactly where needed. By controlling compression on the scar tissue, the healing process advances faster and patient comfort is heightened. The compression zones are specially designed into each product based on indication.
For optimum healing, the surgery site needs rest. That is why products from Tytex and our partners are designed to guarantee no seams in the wound or scar area and at any other critical sites of the applied area. This provides maximum skin friendliness and prevents pressure marks, as well as irritation of skin and tissue.
When it comes to medical textiles and post-op garments, no size fits all. That is why we base all sizes on three parametres; statistical body knowledge, comfort stretch measurements and extensive knowledge and experience with the combination of knitting methods in different materials. The combination of these 3 parameters ensures perfect fit at all times.
