Able2 BV was officially formed on 21 June 2002. During the first years Richard van Eekelen (initiator and founder) was responsible for all business activities. Back then Promedis Ltd. was the only supplier.
Able2 became the exclusive supplier of a great number of brands throughout the Benelux and grew rapidly. On 9 January 2004 Able2 opened its office at the Touwslagerij 21 d in Zevenbergen. Soon the building became too small and in 2009 Able2 moved to a larger office at the Koperslagerij where it is still today. Also, since 2019 Able2 has been renting a large warehouse near the Able2 head office.
In 2007 the British company Promedics was divided in an Orthopaedic division and Aids to Daily Living division. The Orthopaedic business was sold and Promedics ADL Ltd was renamed Able2 UK Ltd to coincide with the overseas company name. From then Able2 became a global company. In 2008 Able2 acquired Spinal Product Ltd, a leading manufacturer and supplier of back care and pressure relieving products. In 2017 Isagi Ltd. was acquired, a company specialised in non-slip materials for better safety and grip in and around homes and workplaces. Able2 also sells these products in other sectors, such as the automobile and boating industry. Both businesses are fully integrated in the Able2 company.
In June 2010 the third branch was founded, Able2 Iberia S.L. In 2019 Able2 opened an office in Altea (Alicante) from where our Spanish and Portuguese customers are served.
In 2014 Able2 introduced its products at the Autonomic Trade Fair in Paris. Since then Able2 has been experiencing a major growth in France. Every year Able2 is present at the leading healthcare trade fairs in Paris, Lyon and Rennes.
Today Able2 has customers in over 15 countries throughout Europe and imports its innovative products from all over the world.
