Originally known as « Etablissements DESPLACE », the company is specialized in the tube industry. It’s in 1978 that the firm changes its name and is becoming the SARL CARINA.
Thanks to work, innovation and in order to answer to a growing demand, the company design its first products for the Aesthetic and Medical fields, in addition to its original activity of tubular products manufacturing.
2 years later, the first examination couch from CARINA is created : The reference 224. This innovative product has the particularity to be declined in several colors. It’s a big new step in the market, where the black color was the reference.
Twenty years after, Fabien DESPLACE is joining the family business with the aim of a new dynamic. It’s at this period that the company initially based in Villeurbanne ( Close to Lyon, in France), is moving to new facilities in Guéreins ( 45 minutes from there). Production and work offices are grouped on the same place. This new geographic location, close to big communication axis ( highways, railway stations and airports) is an important advantage. The integration of a painting chain for new generation epoxy powder is also an improvement for the company’s responsiveness.
In 2004, CARINA obtains the certifications ISO 9001 and ISO 13485. These ones confirm the product’ quality and services of the company.
For all these years, the company CARINA MEDICAL has been designing and manufacturing in its french factory, medical furniture for private cabinets, Analysis laboratories, Public and private hospitals and individuals.
