our mission
Global Medical Manufacturer Founded in 1973
DeRoyal is committed to improving the clinical quality and economic health of its customers. With 1,900 employees, 2.5 million square feet under roof, operations in six countries and four USA states and manufacturing assets on three continents, DeRoyal brings value to its customers in several distinct markets. These markets include surgical devices, unitized delivery systems, orthopedic supports and bracing, and wound care dressings. Key core competencies include injection molding, device assembly, metal fabrication, converting, electronics assembly and sterilization services. DeRoyal combines these fundamental manufacturing capabilities with its own unique services and information technology tools to deliver unparalleled value to its customers with a particular expertise in disrupting dysfunctional markets.
After noticing many deteriorating plaster casts, a young pharmaceutical salesman in Tennessee has an idea for an orthopedic cast boot. 

That salesman is the DeRoyal founder, Pete DeBusk.
Throughout the ‘80s, DeRoyal initiates its first major physical expansion with construction in New Tazewell, TN… now the largest manufacturing campus.

DeRoyal is the first company in the medical industry to offer custom procedural trays on a just-in-time basis.
Throughout the early 1990s, DeRoyal develops and introduces innovative products and global initiatives, as well as a new division of medical products: wound care.

Several expansions through acquired factories and companies establish DeRoyal as an international company.
DeRoyal continues to expand domestically and internationally. DeRoyal celebrates 30+ years in business, and continues to expand the product catalog divisions.

Moving into the digital age, DeRoyal influences an e-business initiative focusing on business development and new uses for web-based tools.
DeRoyal continues with the same entrepreneurial spirit in which it was founded. 

Our mission is to manufacture quality products and provide our customers added value with innovative services. 

Today, DeRoyal is a leading supplier of orthopedic softgoods to hospitals in the U.S.
It has been a long-standing part of DeRoyal’s strategic vision to be able to manufacture a diverse group of products to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of our customers.
