The beginnings of EIHF Isofroid,
EIHF – ISOFROID started its activity in 1972 in Béthune (Nord Pas-de-Calais) by manufacturing refrigerated ramps and tables. It gradually expanded its activity by producing the first vehicle burial compartment and marketing refrigeration cells.
EIHF Isofroid over the years…
Taken over by a group of investors from Lyon, in 1993 the company was transferred to Sarcey in the Rhône region, where it is now based.
Since then, a new range has been produced in the group’s various workshops to meet the demands of our customers: hospitals, medical faculties, retirement homes and funeral parlours. With this new production, entirely made of stainless steel, we progressively imposed ourselves on the market thanks to our competitiveness and our capacity to meet any need.
In 1998, we launched the marketing of thanatopraxy equipment and products, in particular with the takeover of Paul CLERC’s products, Balsamoseptol and Viscéroseptol, himself a thanatopractor recognised in the profession. We thus created a whole range of products for professionals, without competing with them.
In 2002, we internationalised our company through the countries of Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
In 2005, we developed an electro-mechanical handling trolley so that the user no longer has to pump. With a lifting force of 150 kg, this equipment is now manufactured in our workshops at a rate of nearly 160 units per year.
In 2008, as part of our ongoing development, we manufactured a “special bariatric body” trolley with a payload of over 350 kg; a towed version will be marketed in January 2009.
In 2017, Isofroid offers a blowing and lighting plenum that fits above the treatment and autopsy table. In order to adapt to new environmental issues, and in particular global warming: Isofroid has developed cooling systems for extreme ambient temperatures (over 50°c ambient).
In 2019, a new formaldehyde-free preservation fluid (exclusive to Isofroid) was approved by the Ministry of Health on 14 February 2019, and has been marketed since the beginning of 2019 through its network of customers, independent thanatopractors, located throughout France.
In 2020, Isofroid is developing a treatment table with capture of harmful vapours at the source, and in 2021 an electric assistance system for all its electric forklifts.
Today, our constant development allows us to occupy an important place, both on the French and international markets, and to be recognised for our knowledge.
Thank you for remaining loyal to us, we will always listen to you, to serve you better.
