LINET Americas was founded in 2010 as a subsidiary of Czech company LINET, one of the top 5 manufacturers of hospital beds in the world. In 2011 LINET Americas became a part of an international holding company, LINET Group SE based in the Netherlands, founded by LINET and German company WiBo GmbH. The partnership created the largest European company in the production of beds for medical and residential care.
LINET Group’s yearly production reached 66,000 hospital beds with revenues of $126.6 million in the fiscal year 2010-2011. The Group has 800 employees in two manufacturing locations – in Želevčice u Slaného, Czech Republic and Wickede, Germany. Linet Group’s products are exported to more than 100 countries worldwide through several branches in Europe and the United States as well as a network of dealers.
The LINET and WiBo brands concentrate on the two segments favored by the original companies. LINET specializes in the production of hospital beds, while WiBo produces beds for residential and social care. This enables the Group to offer a diverse portfolio of more than 20 products from simple and affordable beds to advanced hi-tech beds for critical care.

LINET’s business strategy especially relies on opportunities for in-house technical innovation and its application in product development. The company closely cooperates with medical staff to make sure that the design and function of its products meet all demands of modern healthcare. This successful strategy helped LINET to win several prestigious awards, including the European Business Award, Innovation of the Year, Outstanding Design Award, Manager of the Year, Company of the Year, Czech Top 100 and others.
