TG Eakin is a Comber-based com­pany which makes med­i­cal skin­care prod­ucts for use in stoma and wound care. The fam­ily-run Eakin Group is one of North­ern Ire­land’s big­gest success sto­ries in the health sec­tor. The firm’s big­gest mar­ket is the US but its prod­ucts are sold in 40 countries around the world.

In 2014, the com­pany in­vested £12m ex­tend­ing its Comber man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity to over 100,000 sq ft. It also ac­quired English firm Cliffe Med­i­cal, which owns Re­spond Plus in Larne, for an undis­closed sum.

The ac­qui­si­tion of Cliffe was TG Eakin’s first since 2007, when it took over Pel­i­can Health­care in Cardiff. The com­pany was founded by Tom Eakin and is now run by his sons Paul and Jeremy.
