Melanor is the industry organization for competence companies that develop and supply medical equipment, laboratory equipment, measuring equipment and aids in the Norwegian market. Melanor represents around 150 member companies and 3,000 employees across the country.
Our members contribute to solving important national tasks, and Melanor works to ensure that the industry has good framework conditions. In this way, we contribute to giving users, patients and professional communities access to the best solutions, to the further development of Norway's health and welfare schemes and to research at hospitals, universities, colleges and industry.
Melanor is committed to making the members' value creation visible in Norwegian society. Equipment developed by our members is essential for prevention, diagnosis and good patient care. With the equipment and solutions provided by our members, many of us have the opportunity to live longer, take care of ourselves, have active lives and contribute to the community. Laboratory equipment also means that we can be safe in the food we eat and in that the water we drink is clean.
Melanor will have a clear voice in the public debate and be a meeting place for knowledge sharing, exchange of experience and networking. Our members, partners, customers, authorities, politicians and other players will experience Melanor as a unifying, competent and accessible industry organization.
Melanor works actively to ensure that the industry complies with current ethical standards, the authorities' requirements for quality and safety, and makes suggestions where we see room for improvement. Our members spend considerable resources on research and development. Good quality and safety are of paramount importance, and the member companies work systematically to ensure the quality of the equipment they develop and deliver. Medical equipment and laboratory equipment must be safe, of good quality and function properly.
