ABIGO Medical AB is a Swedish pharmaceutical company which owns, develops, produces and markets pharmaceuticals and medical device products. The prime area for the medical device products are advanced wound care and ENT.
The company was established in 1989 by the current owners, the brothers Jan G Smith and Leif Smith, both of whom are still actively involved in ABIGO. This results in flexibility and short decision-making processes, with excellent potential for good long-term expansion. An active research and development program in selected areas opens up exciting opportunities for growth and has also led to a number of international patents and patent applications. Unique, patented products developed in house, with international potential in niche areas, are part of ABIGO’s business philosophy.
Antibiotic resistance is a world-wide problem that has been aggravated by the recent emergence of multi-resistant bacteria. In certain cases, doctors are confronted with a medical dilemma of being unable to prescribe an effective treatment. These situations require new and different ways to manage infections and their effects, an area of outmost importance in ABIGO’s R&D program. Our R&D relates to unique solutions utilizing knowledge about natural processes and physical interactions without need for chemical agents or surgical interventions. The ambition is to be an internationally leading player in this area.
The company has an international orientation with distribution of products in some 60 countries through own sales organisations and partners.
ABIGO’s Danish subsidiary, ABIGO Pharma A/S, successfully markets ABIGO’s products in Denmark and a wide range of other self-care products, both its own and in-licensed products. ABIGO Pharma’s products are also exported to a number of countries.
ABIGO’s Norwegian subsidiary, ABIGO Medical AS, markets ABIGO’s products in Norway.
