Who We Are

Our Story

The M.C. Johnson Company was founded in 1978 by Melissa C. Johnson, an LPN working at Emerson Hospital in Concord Massachusetts. First operations were based out of a home in Leominster Massachusetts (pictured below). After seeing her patients in constant discomfort from medical tubing held up by simple tape, she invented the CATH•SECURE®, the world’s first device designed to hold and secure Foley Catheter tubing. With an inventor’s heart, she went on to patent numerous other devices before cancer took her life in 1993.

40 years later, the M.C. Johnson Company continues to carry Melissa C. Johnson’s spirit of innovation and invention. That original CATH•SECURE® spawned products including nasogastric securement, wound care, IV securement, incontinence, facial protection, soft cloth tape, and pediatric securement. Whether it’s designing a better under pad, working with a hospital to improve a device, or just picking up the phone and listening to a customer’s concern, we are problem solvers, ready to take on any task.
