Salts Healthcare was founded in 1701 by brothers John and William Salt who started out as apprentice locksmiths in Wolverhampton before John became established as a surgeons’ instrument maker and cutler. Salts Healthcare ventured into Stomal Therapy in 1948 when Edward Salt started working with Professor Bryan Brooke of Birmingham General Hospital to hand-produce ostomy bags (Professor Brooke perfected the eversion technique for suturing stomas). The extensive knowledge accumulated over decades of association with patients and Stomal Therapy Nurses has resulted in the development of unique appliances particularly in relation to ostomy hydrocolloids. Salts provide a diverse range of ostomy pouches together with ostomy accessories such as seals, wipes and support garments. The company is still in family hands with Phillip, Peter and Robert Salt making regular visits to Australia and New Zealand.

AinsCorp Pty Ltd was established in 2008 with the goal of supplying exceptional medical devices within Australia and New Zealand. AinsCorp operates in the Ostomy and Complex Wounds and Fistula medical device markets in which the organisation has had decades of experience at all levels. AinsCorp has an exclusive agreement with Salts Healthcare and is proud to promote such their unique and exceptional products of exceptional quality. In 2018 Ainscorp and Salts Healthcare celebrated their 10 year anniversary of working together.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand at the 42nd AASTN National Conference.

Coloplast develops products and services that make life easier for people with very personal

and private medical conditions. Working closely with the people who use our products, we create solutions that are sensitive to their special needs. We call this intimate healthcare.

Our business includes ostomy care, continence care, wound and skin care and urology care. We operate globally and employ more than 11,000 employees.

The Coloplast story began back in 1954. Our company reflects the passion, ambition and commitment of the people who made it happen.

Elise Sørensen, a nurse, invented the first disposable, self-adhesive ostomy pouch, because she was determined to help her sister out of isolation. Aage Louis-Hansen added his engineering ability and entrepreneurial drive and through strong commitment and resilience he founded Coloplast.

Still today, people with intimate healthcare needs often live in isolation.

We are fighting to change that.

Our friendly and experienced team look forward to seeing you at the Coloplast stand #4 – 7.
