BSN Jobst Company History

Conrad Jobst founded BSN Jobst in 1950 in Toledo, Ohio. Born in Germany, Conrad was both a mechanical engineer and inventor. He applied his varied expertise and personal experience to the development of gradient compression garments, which relieve the symptoms of venous insufficiency. About the same time VARITEX - the predecessor of BSN Jobst in Europe - became established in Germany and began cooperation with professionals in phlebology and lymphology.

After Conrad's death in 1957, his wife, Caroline Jobst, successfully grew the business. Under her leadership, Jobst expanded the product lines to include Ready-to-Wear vascular garments, consumer support stockings, plastic and reconstructive surgery garments, and anti-embolism stockings. Sales extended to virtually every continent as the BSN Jobst reputation for quality grew. Current brands include Jobst Leukotape P and the popular Jobst Elastoplast as well as Jobst Cover Roll Stretch and Jobst Gelocast Unna Boot. Other well known Jobst products include the Jobst Coverlet Adhesive Dressing and the Jobst Comprilan.

Jobst is known for developing Compression Hosiery that meets individual needs. As an innovator of Compression Therapy Stockings, Jobst offers the following specialized hosiery: Jobst Active Wear Athletic Socks, Jobst Relief Stockings, Jobst Sensifoot Diabetic Socks, Jobst SoSoft, Jobst SupportWear, Jobst UlcerCare, Jobst Vairox and Jobst Women's Casual.

Beiersdorf AG, Hamburg Germany, acquired BSN Jobst in August 1990. The acquisition included the Jobst headquarters and manufacturing sites in Toledo, Ohio, plus manufacturing operations in Hildebran, North Carolina and Thurles, Ireland. Beiersdorf AG also acquired VARITEX in Germany. VARITEX was renamed BSN Jobst in 1996.

Eventually, functioning as an independent player, Jobst was acquired by Montagu Private Equity firm in February 2006, a leading private equity investor in the European mid-market with offices in London, Manchester, Paris, Düsseldorf and Stockholm. Over the last 38 years, the firm has supported more than 400 businesses operating across a range of different segments and sectors, and currently has more than €3 billion under management.
