Essity, the leading global hygiene and health company, was listed on Nasdaq Stockholm June 15, 2017.
The listing of Essity follows the decision to split the SCA Group into two independent listed companies; the forest products company SCA, and the leading global health and hygiene company Essity.
Hygiene and health are firm features in Essity's vision and strategy which highlights the evolving make-up of the organisation.
The Essity name is set to be built on a foundation of both hygiene, health and medical products.
Essity's vision is to be dedicated to improving wellbeing through leading health and hygiene solutions, while the company's mission is to sustainably develop, produce, market and sell value-added hygiene and health products and services.
The opportunity to diversify into new product groups has already been kick-started following the recent acquisition of BSN medical, a leading medical solutions company.
