Draeger Medical consolidates US manufacturing in Telford, Pa


23 March 2005. Luebeck, Germany. Draeger Medical AG & Co. KGaA announced that it will consolidate its medical monitoring device and information technology (IT) manufacturing currently based in Danvers, MA, into its facility located in Telford, PA. The manufacturing of all Draeger Medical monitoring and IT products will be moved to Telford from the current location in Danvers as of August 15, 2005. The headquarters of the Monitoring & IT Business Unit will remain in Danvers due to the high concentration of clinical and research excellence in the Boston area.

Draeger Medical is also in the process of relocating all of its perinatal care activities from Hatboro, PA, to Telford, a move which is expected to be completed by the end of January 2006. With the consolidation of the Hatboro operations and Danvers manufacturing in Telford, the company is bringing together all of its U.S.-based manufacturing (perinatal care, perioperative care, and monitoring & IT) in one centralised location.

According to Dr. Wolfgang Reim, President and CEO of Draeger Medical, "We are gearing up to make an impact in the U.S. market through integration. By concentrating all manufacturing at our facility in Telford, we will realize greater synergies and efficiencies, streamline logistics and supply chain management, and simplify order fulfillment processes. Overall, our customers will benefit from greater flexibility and responsiveness."
