Blue chip history
Just a decade ago, Steroplast offered only a few – half a dozen or so – commodity products. At that time, our focus was as a contract manufacturer for some of the world’s biggest companies, including 3M, Seton Healthcare (inventor of Tubigrip) and Johnson & Johnson. But, as our reputation for quality and service grew, so did the demand for more lines. So we became a manufacturer and distributor of medical disposables, and – more recently – pharmaceuticals and diagnostic equipment.
Today, we have a healthcare range running into thousands of lines, and we’re expanding to meet the needs of a diverse customer base. Our customer base covers seven different market sectors: Emergency, Hospital, Sport, Veterinary, Medical, First Aid and Retail. Many of the best known brands in healthcare work with Steroplast Healthcare, including the British Red Cross who relies on us as an exclusive supplier. Exports account for more than 25% of our turnover – a proportion that’s growing year-on-year, demonstrating our competitive edge and our consistent quality.
Why choose Steroplast?
Consistent quality gives total confidence
At Steroplast Healthcare, we want you to be confident that every delivery you receive will be as good as the last. That’s why quality and consistency have always been at the heart of what we do – and it’s the reason why organisations such as NHS hospitals, as well as veterinary, sports and medical professionals, always ask for Steroplast products by name. In fact, all our products go through a series of quality inspections, and carry the essential “CE” mark – your guarantee that each and every product exceeds the stringent quality standards required in the healthcare sector.
Fast service every time
We never keep our customers waiting. All our products are available ex-stock, so delivery is fast – usually within 24 or 48 hours in the UK, and within just a few days for Europe and the rest of the world.

In the unlikely event that there could be a delay in delivery, we’ll notify you at the time of order.
