We believe that the first step to offer sustainable products is to run a responsible production.
Each product that leaves ABENA's factories is produced with sustainability in mind - because we care about our environmental footprint and about giving our products a clean beginning of their lifecycle.
From raw materials through manufacturing and use, to recycling, and disposal, we have made it our business to preserve the environment and minimize our impact on nature.
Since 1980 and to this day, our manufacturing of baby diapers and incontinence products is taking place at our main production facility in Aabenraa, Denmark. Each year, more than 1 billion products are produced at 14 production lines. Among the ABENA products produced in Denmark are Bambo Nature, ABENA Nova, and ABENA Light.
Our Danish production is certified according to 16 different labeling schemes ranging from quality, energy and environmental management to medical devices, social responsibility, and many more.
Since 1984, our production facility in Sweden has been producing health care products. The assortment includes disposable Abri-Bed protective sheets used for examination beds and tables, operating tables, and similar. In addition, we manufacture disposable bibs for adults that are designed to provide hygienic protection and absorption in connection with meals, as well as airlaid wipes and disposable tissue wipes for patient care, washing, and drying.
Each year, more than 1 billion wipes and 110 million bibs are produced on 21 different production lines.
ABENA’s French production facility has produced absorbent underpads since 1984. The production site is in charge of producing Abri-Soft underpads used as bed protection against incontinence in nursing homes and hospitals and as an underlayer on examination tables and chairs, etc.
135 million products go out from our French production site each year, spanning across two production lines and distributed from 2 warehouses.
ABENA is today home to the most technologically advanced machine of absorbent products in the world: M24.
M24 allows us to keep up with the increasing demand for high-quality incontinence pads and baby diapers, so that we can continue providing our customers with the best products at the right price.
M24 is placed at our main production facility in Denmark and has a capacity of producing 350 incontinence products per minute. M24 is fully automated and energy-optimized.
