A Brief History of Corflex
Corflex started as a small family-owned business that created and developed quality products for orthopedic rehabilitation since 1984. Corflex is derived from "flexible corsets" which were made by the company's original owner for female clients, back in the 1950s. The company was moved to Manchester, New Hampshire by its second generation owners in 1993. The company went through a major renovation in 2011 to cater to its growing workforce and increasing need for warehouse space. There have been numerous milestones in the history of the company. In 1995, the company acquired a vacuum-formed plastic operation called Poly Cast. This acquisition allowed the company to produce an entire line of fracture bracing products. In 1999, the company purchased Medic-Air Corporation of America. Medic Air is known for manufacturing air-filled cushions that can be adjusted for total body support. In 2002, the company was able to create new lines of orthopedic products when it gained the distribution rights for a German-made series of dynamic splints.
In 2003, the company removed latex from their products and all available devices today are latex free. In the same year, the company successfully forged its alliance with three top hospital distribution corporations. In 2004, the Veterans Administration granted an FSS Contract to the company. The company was then able to provide neoprene supports to VA facilities. In the same year, the Department of Defense awarded a DAPA Contract to the company, enabling them to distribute orthopedic rehabilitation devices to the military, particularly its medical facilities. In 2009, the company adopted the tagline Designed for Life. This time the company increased their marketing efforts to reach more people.
