The Company entered the industry in 1965, with the production of disposable medical scissors and instruments for hospital use. In 1972, the Company's Medical Products Division began marketing its own line of products. New products were added to the procedural tray line to meet the specialized needs of hospitals, clinics and convalescent homes. In 1978, wound dressings were introduced by the Company. In 1999, the Company sold the hospital products business but maintained the first aid product line. Today, Acme United Corporation sells first aid kits, refills and OTC medications under the PhysiciansCare Brand. PhysiciansCare is a leading supplier of innovative first aid products in the school, home, office, hardware and industrial markets. The company owns and operates an FDA approved facility for first aid kit assembly and distribution.
