Highlights in the 100-Year History of Scan Modul

The company was founded in 1912 by Georg Larsson and originally provided catering trolleys to Danish hospitals.

In 1940, Larsson’s son, Ole Larsson, took the helm of the company and expanded its product offering to include hospital beds, trolleys and cabinets.

In 1972, Scan Modul developed the modular storage concept and introduced it to the Scandinavian market – the now standard 40x60cm system was born, the basis for the ISO 3394 standard.

In 2008, the multinational business of Scan Modul was acquired by Stanley Black & Decker and is now part of Stanley Healthcare Solutions.

Today, Stanley Healthcare Solutions also includes Supply Chain & Asset Management solutions as well as Healthcare Consulting Services. Its products, solutions and services are sold throughout Europe, North America and the world.

“It is a significant accomplishment for a business to grow and thrive for 100 years,” said Eric Devineau, Vice President of European Sales at Stanley Healthcare Solutions. “Achieving such a milestone requires a deep understanding of client needs and the ability to adapt and innovate along with the organizations we serve. The Scan Modul line of products is an important part of Stanley Healthcare’s comprehensive solutions offering, and we’re proud to celebrate a century of contributions to the advancement of healthcare.”
