The Varodem company
We at Varodem are passionate about people. Developing and providing medical aids that accompany patients during their therapy from start to finish is our mission. Our compression garments and (self-)adjustable compression devices are made with latest technology and offer patients custom solutions for any requirement.
Hence our slogan:
All about people!
The company is founded by Mr. Pieter de Klerk and Mr. Odilon Coppens at the community of Saint-Léger, in the Belgian province of Luxembourg. This unique combination of Mr. de Klerk’s commercial talent and Mr. Coppens’ technical talent laid down the foundation that made Varodem into the succesful company it is today.
With the employment of mr. René de Klerk, and the subsequent takeover of all commercial activities, Varodem’s focus will be more on practice. Under the leadership of Mr. de Klerk jr. Varodem grows into the ‘solutions’ company.
The Varodem team is further expanded. Mr. Mark Minderhout takes on the role of marketing manager and gradually introduces the necessary structure in product lines, markets and patients.
Varodem becomes part of the global JUZO network. With more than 100 years of experience, Juzo is one of the leading manufacturers in the medical field and produces knitted fabrics for professional medical applications in the most modern factories – also for Varodem- www.juzo.de
