People focused

At eakin® we don't believe having a stoma should define you. We believe it's just a small part of a bigger life.

This is something we passionately believe in, and why we consistently strive to produce and innovate products that will help our customers live life as easily, happily and as fully as possible.

Made in Ireland, the story of eakin®

The company was formed in 1974 by Tom Eakin, a pharmacist in Dundonald, just outside Belfast. As a result of having a close family member with a urostomy and listening to the problems of ostomates visiting his pharmacy, he felt a strong desire to help improve their quality of life. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength and now supplies ostomy and wound care products around the world.

Still a family owned and run business, TG Eakin Limited always ensures that patient needs are incorporated into our product design, providing comfort, protection and ease of use.
