During the last 60 years, Gary Manufacturing has built relationships with distributors across the United States, as well as internationally. All of our distributors offer a variety of quality, reusable products to meet your incontinence needs. With distributors in 10 different states as well as England, Germany, and Australia we are confident you can find a distributor to assist you with purchasing from our GaryWear product line. Here we have highlighted two of their stories.
Since 1997 LL Medico has been distributing the full GaryWear product line, making them one of our longest-standing distributors for incontinence products. Heather and Alex have been a part of the family business since the company was created 25 years ago. The company started in Pennsylvania with all reusable products but steadily began including disposable products due to customer demand. Heather and Alex are proud that the company has been able to stay a family-owned business and appreciate the opportunity to assist customers and answer questions.

Protex Medical in Texas has been a distributor of GaryWear products since early 2002. They began as a small company selling vinyl and rubber diaper covers in 1994. Over the years the company steadily expanded to include the entire GaryWear line, as well as disposable diapers, mattress pads, training pants, and diaper pins. Matt and Allison purchased Protex just over a year ago when the original owner was ready to retire. Matt had spent years working with Protex developing their website and during this time he built an affinity for the business. Matt and Allison are happy to help customers and answer their questions.

Posted by Gary Manufacturing on | Comments Off on GaryWear Active Brief; Developing an Essential Solution to a Universal Problem
Over 25 million people in the United States have experienced incontinence at some time in their lives. Many of these people are leading busy, active lives when they suddenly have a difficult new problem to manage.
Incontinence can happen when you cough, laugh, sneeze, or jog. Bladder control problems are very common, especially among our growing senior population. It usually doesn’t cause major health problems but can be embarrassing and difficult to manage. Without proper treatment and quality incontinence products, it can diminish one’s dignity, confidence, and social function.
Gary Manufacturing has been producing quality incontinence products for 30 years. In 2011, Gary Manufacturing listened to our customers and created the GaryWear Active Brief to create a comfortable and discreet extra layer of protection — for confidence around the clock.
Recently I sat down with Gary Manufacturing’s General Manager, Kerri Smith, to learn more about the process of creating the Active Brief.
After more than a year of market research, the Gary team learned that many people with incontinence felt like they did not have a reliable solution for their incontinence issues that fit with their very active daily lives. The Active Brief was developed to provide security and take the onus out of needing to wear an absorbent product every day. These briefs look like regular underwear and offer security from leaks while performing everyday tasks such as going to the gym, the office, and running errands.
While all aspects of this project were produced in-house, Kerri and her team did hire outside services to create the perfect fit as well as assist with professional packaging and marketing materials.
Design, construction, and sizing was a huge factor in the Active Brief development. We learned that it was vital the elastic at the leg be a tight fit to make it a real solution to the leakage problem.
During the development of the Active Brief we accomplished two major goals that we set out to achieve; customer satisfaction and continued brand recognition.
The GaryWear Active Brief has helped our customers not to feel embarrassed for having a very normal medical condition. The product continues to receive 5-star reviews from users on a consistent basis.
Since the release of the Active Brief, Gary Manufacturing has solidified our brand awareness within the global incontinence community. In addition to distributors throughout the United States, Gary is sold worldwide with distributors in Germany, England and Australia.
