Puritan Medical Products Company LLC/Hardwood Products Company LLC of Guilford Maine has become the nation’s principal manufacturer of a broad variety of tipped applicators, tongue depressors and other medical and non-medical disposable woodenware. Originally the firm was founded under the name of Minto Toothpick and Specialty Company, whose only product was mint-flavored toothpicks. Over the years, as market demands increased, the family business separated into two operating businesses to better serve the two distinct markets.

Since 1999, it’s been my pleasure leading these highly successful, central Maine companies thanks to the outstanding efforts of our talented and dedicated 450 employee workforce.

Marketed under our GoldBond® and Trophy™ brands, Hardwood Products Company LLC supplies disposable woodenware products to the foodservice and dairy industries, and to industrial and craft customers. Popular items include ice cream sticks, spoons, stirring sticks, and skewers. All woodenware is made from Northern White Birch, processed for its light color, smooth surface, tight grain, and tensile strength.

Puritan Medical Products Company LLC is known worldwide as the trusted manufacturer of single-use products for the healthcare, diagnostic, forensic, critical environment, food safety, and drug manufacturing industries. Our comprehensive product line of swabs and transport media systems, for example, takes advantage of the most up-to-date materials and manufacturing processes to deliver innovative solutions for even the most demanding applications.
