Company History

Since the beginning, Andover has strived to produce high quality products that fill a need for customers. Andover continues in that tradition today. From its roots as a manufacturer of tape for the Sports Medicine industry in 1976, to its focus today on break-through, innovative products that are filling a gap in the healthcare, animal health and sports medicine industries, Andover Healthcare has been there to produce high quality, made in the USA products that improve the lives of its customers.

Andover has many industry “firsts”, including:

  • Developing a latex-free bandage that performs better than latex
  • Designing a cohesive bandage/foam pad embedded with silver to help prevent and fight infections including MRSA
  • Going to market with an all-in-one cohesive bandage/absorbent dressing that is cost effective and saves time
  • Developing a cohesive bandage with easy hand tear for quick application and prevention of cross contamination from scissors
  • Offering cohesive bandages with controlled compression
  • Introducing cohesive bandages in colors and color packs
  • Manufacturing latex-free printed bandages
