AddVision is a leading European manufacturer-independent provider of high-quality ophthalmic products and services.
At the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic, there was an almost desperate situation with a shortage of protective products in healthcare. The products were out of stock with our suppliers and we were able to quickly probe the market. Through our wide network of contacts, we found a new supplier in China fairly immediately, but home transport during the pandemic proved to be a major challenge. After many trips, the goods could be shipped home by plane, boat and truck all the way from China. It felt incredibly good after all the commitment to see the products come out and be used in healthcare.

AddLife acquired us in February 2017. The integration has gone very smoothly and AddLife has lived up to what they said to us during the acquisition process. In my experience, we have freedom with responsibility and the Parent Company has a long-term perspective regarding our business. We now have stronger muscles, new partners and opportunities to enter new markets. I strongly believe that together with AddLife and the other Medtech companies we will continue on this successful path.
