Alan dental and medical

Alan Dental and Medical

Alan & Co is a Belgian family business, established in 1980 in Verviers (Belgium), a city with a long history of textile production. Our reputation in the dental and medical manufacturing industry is based on many years’ experience. Initially specialized in dental products, we quickly diversified into the medical sector, which now represents 70% of our turnover.

Alan & Co works from the reception of containers of cotton bales through to the finished product. Our flexibility enables us to produce small or large quantities under either the Alan brand name or a ‘private label’, including special products, and to organize the carriage and official paperwork, whatever the final destination of your order.

Our customers are importers and/or distributors, who sell our products throughout the world, in hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, dental and veterinary clinics, beauty treatment centres and hairdressers. We never sell directly to final users so as not to compete with our customers

Our structures are equipped with photovoltaic panels producing 540 kWc for a total annual production of 486.000 kWh/an (this represents the annual consumption of 120 average households). These panels substitute at 100% roof and wall from our warehouse. Alan&Co use recycled cotton and recyclable materials, sort the waste and make every effort to reduce our carbon footprint by producing in Belgium.
