Texsan Medical Ltd. is a Bulgarian company operating in the hospital clothing sector, and in particular in safety products, protective clothing and accessories for medical use, as well as for veterinary medicine. Texsan is located in Sandanski, Southern Bulgaria, and is part of STS Medical Group.
The company was established in 1993, launching its first product range of isolation gowns, scrub suits and headwear. In 1995, Texsan started a development project which led to a significant growth of the workforce and production capacities. Additional medical production has been successfully developed in the last few years, including new production facilities for surgical gowns, and the product range now consists of more than 300 models, all successfully distributed in Europe.
Texsan Medical operates in two main business areas: medical devices and industrial products, the latter of which includes products for Care and Hygiene, Emergency Accessories, Veterinary Products and Protective Clothing.
Texsan constantly invests to guarantee modern production processes and maintain high quality standards for its products. As a result, the Company continues to grow, consistently winning new customers across Europe.
In 2014, Texsan manufactured over 1,000,000 surgical gowns, more than 5,000,000 surgical drapes and approximately 1,200,000 Custom Procedure Trays (CPTs). These volumes represent annual growth of over 14%. Texsan is currently constructing new clean room facilities to expand CPT production further.
One of the latest innovative products is Texsan’s brand new Polyvet coverall that is able to protect from the risks of biohazards such as the Ebola virus.
Texsan Medical, along with SALVAMED, is part of the Bulgarian Manufacturing Hub (BMH), which is one of the major European manufacturing centers of products for the hospital textiles. The Hub, located in southern Bulgaria in Sandanski, comprises 30 buildings and contains industry-leading production technology.
In 2004, Texsan developed and launched a line of Personal Protective Equipment with the coveralls Polyvet® Extra – Category III and Category I, all certified according to the European Standards. As the PPE production has adopted the strict quality standards applied in medical production, the other Safety products have all meet these same standards. This is reflected in the ISO 9001, ISO 13485, Directive 89/686/EEC on Personal Protective Equipment and ISO 9001:2008 Certifications of Texsan, all of which also require a specific training program.
We are pleased to inform that recently Texsan has completed the Certification of the new model of coverall for protection against infectious agents according to EN 14126. This is the model Polyvet® Extra 100PE04B which is made of 100 µ PE film, completely liquid proof, types 3-B, 4-B, 5-B and 6-B.
The new coverall is appropriate for use in areas affected by EBOLA.
