EuroTec was founded by Aat van der Leden and Arthur Smid. Aat van der Leden has more than 35 years of international experience with stoma – and wound care products. He was one of the pioneers at the founding of ConvaTec in 1978 and co-responsible for the development of new products. Arthur Smid joined the Dutch ConvaTec team in 1982 and became one of the first qualified stoma nurses in 1984. In 1988 they started their own business with the successful stoma specialty shop CombiCare, which became market leader in few years. They were managing over 12,000 stoma patients and distributing all brands of stoma appliances. In 1996 they left CombiCare and founded EuroTec. Their broad expertise in patient care and product development was combined in EuroTec and today everyone can benefit from that. EuroTec comprises 60 enthusiastic employees and is active in several European countries as well as further afield.
