Company message

Welcome to the MIP Website.

We are getting into a new era. Following five successful years, where we focused on our Vision 2020 strategic plan, I am pleased to announce that we are getting close to embark on a new journey where we will continue to spread our superior products and sound advice to a wider group of customers in the Healthcare Industry.

Since the very beginning, MIP owes it success partly to our strong culture and our dedicated colleagues. As we continue to grow, we believe it is critical that we hold on to these two elements. Therefore, we have spent much of this year focusing on “putting word” on our culture and what we are all about. We are also continuously measuring our employee engagement and we are mobilizing leaders at all levels to engage in dialogue with their teams about how we make MIP a great place to work.

In order to “rediscover” our culture and core values, we undertook 1-on-1 interviews and workshops where more than 50% of the organization participated. Workshops and 1-on-1 interviews were held at every site and the similarities in what we heard were striking. We might be oceans apart, but at MIP we truly have one culture and one set of values. They are:

  • Caring; We care about our colleague’s wellbeing, we care about our customers and we care about the success of our business.
  • Respect; We always assume good intentions and we treat others the way they want to be treated.
  • Innovation; We challenge the status quo, we are open to do new things, we experiment and we know we have the right to fail from time to time.
  • Collaboration, We trust our colleagues to help in times of need, we strive to break down silos and focus on what’s best for the team and the organization.
  • Determination, We set ambitious goals and we go the extra mile to meet them and we take pride in delivering against agreed timelines.

Every time you meet one of our team, you can ask them about it and how they apply it in their daily professional life.

We also have started investing in areas that will have a direct impact on our customers. We wish to ensure that our innovative superior products are always introduced to you at the most competitive pricing possible. Our Supply Chain department keeps expanding. In addition to the very capable individuals that count many years at MIP, we have added additional resources in purchasing, sourcing, quality control and logistics. All to ensure that you get the best service possible at all times.

Our Marketing Department has gotten renewed energy with a team that is always on top of the latest trends and technologies and full of ideas on developing new products, exploring different sectors and ensuring that we support you with best tools and information. We are very excited about where their new ideas will take us in the coming years.

Our customers and the industry always identified MIP as one of the true innovators in healthcare textiles and related services. We will keep working at it by having a Product Development process that is efficient, attuned to your needs and always deserving of our reputation.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any MIP employee with any questions, comments or concerns. We always make it a priority to listen to you and help you find ways to achieve or exceed all of your goals.

I look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at events we are attending around the world,

Who We Are

Our History

MIP is a Canadian company with a very proud history. MIP (previously known as Med-I-Pant) was founded by Jerry Friedman in 1977 as the first manufacturer and supplier of adult reusable briefs designed to meet the needs of incontinent adults . About a year later, David Schreiner joined as a partner to head up sales. Together, they started to build the company, adding other key employees along the way. Today, MIP has become a global leader in the reusable healthcare textile industry, providing a broad range of products and services to the healthcare industry in North America, Europe and around the world.

From the start, the Company's employees were inspired by a vision of understanding customers' needs and providing products that met those needs. The Company grew because of this innovative spirit and unique customer approach. As a result, MIP and its employees around the world have earned the respect and admiration of healthcare professionals and competitors alike and the Company is recognized and defined as a leader in innovation and dedication to customers' needs.

Today, the MIP group sells its products in Canada, the United States and internationally in more than 27 countries. We have offices and facilities in Europe with MIP Europe GMBH, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, Med-I-Pant UK Ltd. (MIP UK) in the United Kingdom and serve many of the other European countries including France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, and Italy. We supply our customers with a broad range of textile products, services and solutions in all markets. Our customers include large and small laundries, distributors, hospitals and long term care facilities.

In September 2013, MIP's ownership group expanded with an investment from Banyan Capital Partners. Today, MIP is owned by senior management in partnership with Banyan. Banyan's approach is to partner with management teams, combining their experience and expertise with extensive capital resources to help build and grow their portfolio companies. In 2016, MIP acquired the UK based health care textile company Cromptons, thus solidifying its UK position and expanding it's product portfolio.

The continued success would not be possible without the support of our dedicated team of employees and business partners, our devotion to teamwork and our core values as reflected in our Beliefs and Corporate Directional Plan.
