Getinge has announced it will be the first medtech company to move into the growing St Modwen Park Derby, where a showroom and training area are incorporated in the new facility.
Sweden-based Getinge’s new Global Centre of Excellence for Chemistry will also become its UK headquarters. The facility will bring together the medtech company’s chemistry and instrument decontamination business as well as its UK sales offices, service functions and logistics operations.
It will be inaugurated on January 31 in St. Modwen Park, the industrial & logistics park in Derby, UK.
With the growth of our chemistry production volumes and the density of our innovation roadmap, we took the decision to invest into a larger and more modern facility
Stéphane Le Roy, President Surgical Workflows at Getinge, said: “With the growth of our chemistry production volumes and the density of our innovation roadmap, we took the decision to invest into a larger and more modern facility. It will allow us to serve more hospitals globally, provide a better work environment for our teams, and improve our innovation capacity and quality control.”
Avril Forde, President North Europe Region at Getinge, said: “A new era for our teams where for the first time in our UK Getinge history all employees can come together under ‘one roof’ is an incredible feeling. The new experience centre and educational facilities allows us to demonstrate Getinge’s technologies and vast portfolio to existing and future customers, strengthening further our ambitions to be a ‘partner of choice.”
