SHL Group was established in 1989 by Swedish entrepreneurs Roger Samuelsson and Martin Jelf. It has since grown to become a world-leading solution provider of drug delivery solutions.
We design, develop, and manufacture advanced drug delivery systems such as autoinjectors, pen injectors, and inhaler systems. We also manufacture a range of products for the healthcare and medtech industries, including pressure mattress systems, patient lifting slings, medical soft goods, and offer design-to-build and contract manufacturing services for products such as laboratory handling equipment, neurosurgical devices, and industrial equipment.
By integrating our experienced development teams with efficient manufacturing and a skilled workforce, SHL has developed a successful business model that allows us to provide comprehensive solutions for demanding requirements of the industry.
When our company was established
“We continue to expand the range of services that SHL offers to better suit the needs of our customers. The insourcing of key capabilities vital to manufacturing remains a proven and effective strategy. And now, by vertically integrating areas such as tooling, automation, and final assembly, we are able to move products to market even faster.
The entrepreneurial spirit of our people has allowed us to achieve great things over the years. Even as our organization grows larger, we still maintain our responsiveness to customer needs. As a pioneer in design, development, and manufacturing, we will continue to move forward, taking on new challenges and building on our success.”
We have dedicated years of expertise, commitment, and resources to developing world-class healthcare solutions that empower people.
