So, Who is Therafirm…
Compression products have been around for many years. Therafirm was one of the original compression hosiery brands established in the early 1950s. Parke-Davis, a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, developed Therafirm. Since then, Therafirm has evolved from simply a medical compression product to a compression product that is beneficial, comfortable, stylish, breathable, and accessible.
In 1990, Therafirm was purchased by a long time Parke-Davis employee, Charles Schoolcraft. He then relocated Therafirm to Ellerbe, North Carolina in 1996. The plant still resides there. North Carolina hosiery manufacturers provide compression hose to most of the US market. (Our hats are off you to North Carolina!)
In 2000, a Kansas City based company, Knit-Rite, Inc, purchased Therafirm. Knit-Rite is one of the world’s leading Orthotic and Prosthetic manufacturers and distributors. Since 2000, Therafirm’s colors and styles have been updated to reflect what you, the consumer, want.
That’s Therafirm in nutshell, but don’t worry, there’s much more to come!
