Despite the fact that ours is a small country with just over 9 million inhabitants, we have achieved international success in trade, industry, sports, music and global politics. Renowned companies such as H&M, Ericsson, Absolut Vodka, Spotify, Volvo and the aforementioned IKEA have blazed a trail for more Swedish companies out in the world.
Sweden is also famous for its beautiful, unspoiled countryside and our northerly land offers a great diversity of plant and animal life – something that inspired the botanist Carl von Linné to explore the world. Other famous Swedes who have left an impression on the world are the inventor Alfred Nobel, the actress Greta Garbo, the director Ingmar Bergman, the pop group ABBA and last but not least Astrid Lindgren, who wrote Pippi Longstocking and other classic children ´s books.
The Swedish colors have also been seen all over the world in major athletics events and we have raised sports stars such as tennis player Björn Borg, golfer Annika Sörenstam and football player Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Here at GATE we are quite simply proud of being a part of Sweden. We are also proud of being part of Swedish healthcare which is among the world´s best healthcare systems. Healthcare in Sweden is state financed and demands high standards of the products and aids used, which in turn stimulates innovation and product development by suppliers.
At GATE, it has always been our goal to develop and improve our products. We create new solutions, new possibilities and new opportunities for patients and carers alike by applying new technologies to our passion for design and nursing. We help create a safer, brighter world.
We do this in classic Swedish entrepreneurial spirit and a happy to share this with the rest of the world.
