N. Attleboro, MA, October 31, 2005 – Health Enterprises, Inc. a leading manufacturer of niche health care products looks forward to strong First Aid sales growth in 2006.

“The significant number of people across all demographics participating in sports and recreational activity, coupled with the increase in consumer self-care will continue to drive sales growth of our new and innovative first aid products,” said Brendan Leonard, senior director of sales and marketing at Health Enterprises.
