F&P Healthcare company history

Company History

Fisher & Paykel entered the respiratory care market in 1971 with the development of a unique respiratory humidifier system for use in critical care. We now offer a broad range of products and systems for use in respiratory and acute care and in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Our fact sheet provides more detail on our company’s financial performance.

Our Story

At Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, we fully understand the life-changing impact that can result from delivering inspired and world-leading healthcare solutions.

After all, we changed the way the world delivers respiratory humidification to critically ill patients in hospital, and were the first organisation in the world to make a humidifier specifically for use in the treatment of patients with obstructive sleep apnea.

Today, through an unrivalled commitment to innovation; to doing the right thing; and doing what is best for the patient, we continue to inspire world-leading healthcare solutions.

Our team of self-motivated, empathetic and committed individuals is our strength. It is this team; our originality; the value we place on relationships; our international perspective; and the utmost care for all patients, customers, suppliers, shareholders, as well as the environment, that will ultimately ensure we will be the healthcare company of choice.

Our Business

Our consistent growth strategy is to provide an expanding range of innovative medical devices which can help to improve care and outcomes for patients in an increasing range of applications.

We believe that product development and clinical research is critical to our success. We continue to expand the range of innovative medical devices that we provide to assist clinicians to improve patient care and outcomes. New and improved products and processes, along with the development of new medical applications for our technologies, are critical drivers for our annual revenue and earnings growth.

The growing number of employee(s) in these markets helps us to ensure that our product range is well supported and new products and applications for our products are quickly brought to the attention of health professionals and our customers. Approximately 99% of our sales revenue is derived from outside New Zealand.

With the healthcare device industry regulated worldwide, the ability to meet stringent standards is vital to ensuring market acceptance of our products. We assist our compliance with these standards by operating a quality management system certified to a range of international standards which apply to both our manufacturing facilities and our sales network.

We manufacture, assemble and test our complete range of products, including many components, in our facilities in New Zealand and Mexico. Our facilities incorporate controlled working environments and our manufacturing and design processes are certified to meet the international medical device quality standard ISO13485.
