About us

Experience the SDS difference today.

Who we are

SDS is a family owned company, based in Bordon, Hampshire, since 1977. During our 43 years’ in the Healthcare sector we’ve formed strong alliances both with our clients and our supply partners so you can be sure you’re getting the best product when you deal with us.

The advent of Covid-19 saw us answering SOS calls from the NHS for much needed PPE. Harnessing the power of our wide supply chain network it wasn’t long before we’d delivered over 1,000,000 gowns to over 15 different NHS and Private Trusts across the UK.

Innovation and product development are key and whilst we will only bring the best product to market, we’re always looking for ways to fine-tune and engage with our users to this end.

Supply chain

We’re proud to have one of the shortest and most robust supply chains in the industry. Our products are manufactured to our strict specification, entirely within the EU Trade zone. Our manufacturing partner has undergone rigorous checks not only by our own 3rd party inspectors but also holds all relevant recognised CE Certification, ISO:9001 and ISO:13485:2016 certificates.

Unique to the industry, our manufacturing partner 100% owns and operates its own non-woven fabric production mill. With 250 skilled workers and 6 production lines continuity of supply is safeguarded against the usual global supply pressures experienced by many relying on a 3rd party production mill.
