Founded in New Zealand in 1969, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare first started life as a division of Fisher & Paykel Industries. Though Fisher & Paykel Industries is best known as an appliance manufacturer, it expanded into the healthcare sector in the late 1960s with the creation of a ventilator for use in respiratory care.
The medical division of the company grew quickly and was renamed Fisher & Paykel Healthcare by 1990. Fisher & Paykel Industries then separated into separate healthcare and appliance companies in 2001, with Fisher & Paykel Healthcare listed publicly on the NZX and Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
Today, the company specialises in products used in respiratory care, surgery and the treatment of sleep apnea. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s respiratory products and therapies are now in use in hospitals and homes in over 120 countries.
In its half-year report released in November 2020, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare reported a record net profit increase of 86%. The company’s net profit after tax was $225.5 million, with operating revenue of $910.2 million.
This performance was influenced in part by the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to an increase in demand for Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s respiratory care products and systems.
