Those days, the fundamentals of the gamma of hospitalization were made. The range of products contained needles and syringes, sterilization boxes, urologic catheters, endotracheal tubes, all kinds o bandages etc.
Their Son, Jean-Jacques Nootens, enters the family company in 1968 and he decides to create the surgical department. This department offers a range of products for the use in the OR: surgical instruments, instruments for thoracic drainage, orthopedic en ophthalmologic implants. Mr Andre Lombarts starts in 1978 as the head of the department of hospitalization and as the chief of finances.
