Family owned and focused on interdental cleaning and preventive dental care, TePe began in 1965. Even from the start TePe has been in collaboration with dental professionals to keep at the cutting edge of dental technology.
The very first product was developed when then wood-carver Henning Eklund created a new kind of dental stick in cooperation with the professors of the school of Dentistry in Malmö. The dental stick was triangular to fit the natural shape of the interdental space.
Fast forward to the present TePe has reached a turnover of 700 MSEK, with 320 employees in six countries and exports their products to over 60 countries. Throughout this time, TePe has kept its headquarters and all production in Malmo.
