In the 1800s the Burroughs Wellcome Company, a medical manufacturing and supply operation, began packaging medications and dressings into portable cases for use in the field. In those early days, some very famous people carried Burroughs Wellcome Medical Kits. In 1871, the historic journey of Stanley searching for Livingtone through the heart of Africa was put in the hands of a Burroughs Wellcome First Aid Kit. These trusted kits were also the aid used by Admiral Peary in his discovery of the North Pole in 1909.

In 1871, the historic journey of Stanley searching for Livingtone through the heart of Africa was put in the hands of a Burroughs Wellcome First Aid Kit. These trusted kits were also the aid used by Admiral Peary in his discovery of the North Pole in 1909.

In 1922, Burroughs Wellcome trademarked their packaging design Pac-Kit. Pac-Kit is the first and oldest brand name of unitized first aid products. In 1946, Burroughs Wellcome began to divest itself of some of its divisions to concentrate on its core business of manufacturing pharmaceutical drugs. The Industrial Medical Division was one of these, and incorprated Pac-Kit into its new corporate name as the Pac-Kit Safety Equipment Company. Pac-Kit was now an independent company that dedicated its business to providing medical and first aid kits to American industry.

Today, Pac-Kit means trust. With over a century of medical product manufacturing behind it, the Pac-Kit logo stands in front of a history of the highest standards of reliability, product quality, and customer service.

Acme United Corporation has a long history in the medial and health care industry. The company entered the industry in 1965, with the production of disposable medical scissors and instruments for hospital use. In 1972, the company’s Medical Products Division began marketing its own line of products. New products were added to the procedural tray line to meet the specialized needs of hospitals, clinics and convalescent homes. In 1978, wound dressings were introduced by the company; in 1999, the company sold the hospital products business but maintained the first aid product line. Today, Acme United Corporation sells first aid kits, refills and OTC medications under the PhysiciansCare and Pac-Kit Brands.
