Founded in 1999 by Mr. Ekrem Basarir, whom now serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. MEDITEKS remained as a trading company until 2001. Then, it started its own manufacturing facility for the production of Absorbent Cotton Gauze Bandages, Conforming Elastic Bandages, Crepe Elastic Bandages and Compression Elastic Bandages with a small workshop equipped with merely 7 machines.
In the year of 2003, MEDITEKS started the production of Thermo-Therapy Products with the manufacturing of Hot - Cold Compresses, thereby introducing and contributing to the promotion of these products in the market.
In 2006, Mrs. Begum Ayaydin, who is currently a member of the Board of Directors, joined the company. Following her participation, the company started exporting its products to a great number of companies on a global scale.
In 2007, the company started the production of Gauze Swabs with the aims of expanding its already-wide product range.
