A remarkable healthcare group.
Founded nearly 60 years ago, we are an independent, family-run business. Competing in an industry dominated by large multi-nationals, the Group has flourished as a private, British enterprise.
Most of our business is conducted in the UK, where several products rank as brand leaders in their categories.
The Diomed Group brings together research, development, manufacture, marketing and distribution under one umbrella - something rarely seen in a relatively small, family owned company.
1963 – Dermal Laboratories was founded by a London physician to develop, market and distribute pharmaceutical products to dermatologists.
1970 - We moved from London to our present location in rural Hertfordshire.
1970s - Dermal grew rapidly, broadening from supplying speciality products for dermatologists to include prescriptions products for GPs and nurses.
1980s - We adopted the name Diomed Developments for our parent company, and acquired large, new warehouse premises at Kempston.
1990s – We expanded into the OTC market and also acquired Aeropak, to become the Diomed Group of companies.
2013 - A new "Springwood Research Centre" was opened on our Hitchin site, representing our dedication to innovation and continued research.
2017 - A new “Sunbeam Development Laboratory” was constructed at our Kempston site.
2019 - A new “Whitefield Wing” was added to the Springwood Research Centre.
