Anatomica started its business around 1980 in Karlstad by three former employees of Howmedica, now owned by Stryker. The business idea was originally to import and sell medical products from Japan, where a fourth partner lived. In 1983 Anatomica moved to Gothenburg.

Anatomica sold the Black & Decker sawing and drilling equipment on the Swedish market contributed substantially to the success of the company.

In 1981 an agreement was signed with Biomet Inc., a new company in the US that produced orthopedic implants. Anatomica became a strong player whithin the implant sector. Especially the AGC total knee prosthesis led to the strong growth for Anatomica. In 2007 Biomet was sold to a private consortium for about $ 11 billion. At almost the same time Anatomica sold its' Biomet distribution to Biomet.

In 2001 the spinal company Nordopedic was acquired by Anatomica. Nordopedic is the basis for the posterior lumbar spinal fusion system PF and the innovative posterior cervical spinal fusion system OC. Anatomica is certified according to ISO13485. The products are registered in Europe (MDD), USA (FDA), Brazil (ANVISA), Japan and Australia.

The business is now focused on spinal, trauma and other orthopedic implants. Anatomica has always stood for quality, safety and high service level.
