About Us

J.H. ORSING AB was founded in the 50´s as Ingenjörsfirman J.H. Orsing by John Harry Orsing. Being a trained refrigeration engineer, his first invention was a deep-freeze named ”Osby-Polar”. This invention gave him the economic possibilities to start thinking about new inventions.

One day, in the late 50´s Harry Orsing, whilst being treated by his dentist, became really tired of the unwieldy and chafting instruments he had to endure. He decided that something had to be done, went home, and started to outline what was to become one of the world’s best known mouldable Saliva Ejectors – The Hygoformic®. Today the outstanding qualities still make Hygoformic one of the most popular saliva ejectors in the world.

Ernst Orsing, engineer and inventor, followed his father´s trade. Over the years he designed several interesting products such as the development of the aspirating tubes Scantube®, Scantube® Vent, Hygovac® and Hygovac® Vent as well as the aspirator tips Hygo® Surge, Hygo® Jet and Hygo® Tip. Continuous improvements provide better products, maintained Orsing quality.
Ernst Orsing had development and new construction very much at heart and our personnel constantly worked with adding new products to our Hygo-Line. Large investments over the years have turned J.H. ORSING AB into a modern and rational company – ready to meet with the growing demand for the products. Starting with Sweden, the Hygoformic® soon spread to the other Scandinavian countries and to Europe. Today the Orsing products are available throughout the world. We attend major Dental Exhibitions and take pride in doing our outmost for customers all over the world. Ernst Orsing passed away in 2020
