Abena originally started as a small supplier with a modest product assortment. Today, Abena is a customer-focused, co-operative partner who develops, manufactures and sells quality products within a wide range of areas.

The Abena Group was founded in 1953, when Jens Terp-Nielsen established the company Saekko A/S in Aabenraa in the south of Denmark. The main activity concerned the sale of jute sacks for agriculture. Saekko A/S developed into a trading company and in 1980 we established our own production of baby nappies and sanitary towels under the brand Bambo. In the 1980’s the company began to export products to other countries, and today we export our products to more than 75 markets worldwide.

In 2003 the company name changed to Abena, and today we have more than 1,300 employees worldwide, offering a wide assortment, not only of hygiene articles, but also plastic and paper products, waste systems and packaging.
