At the end of the 1960s, Arjo began exporting products to Western Europe. At the time there was a strong demand for the company's products, and Arjo was soon able to establish international sales offices in Britain, Germany, France, Belgium, and the United States.

During the 1980s, Arjo strengthened its position in the international market through the acquisition of the US company Century and the UK based Mecanaids. This, along with the further expansion of its global sales reach, soon propelled Arjo into becoming a world leader in hygiene and patient handling products.
