Gill Sweeney

GILL Sweeney used her experience as a pharmacist to start manufacturing her own brand of elasticated tubular bandage when she set up Easigrip Ltd in 1999.

She felt there should be a greater choice of bandage available on the market and realised her small family-run business could offer customers a high level of service.

Within months of setting up the company, Easigrip was and still is being exported to several overseas countries.

The success of the product has been remarkable with general practitioners and community nurses across the UK prescribing it. Winning a contract to supply Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal hospitals in Ireland, is just one of Gill’s recent achievements.

It is unusual for a woman to own a business within the manufacturing sector. Equally irregular, is the uncommon nature for a company to export a product before being established in the UK.

But Gill, through the help of Trade Partners UK and her determination to manufacture her own quality product, has succeeded in delivering a new brand of elasticated tubular bandage that is being used by millions of people worldwide.
