Posted on October 31, 2012 @ 10:06 am
Heraeus Medical Components, headquartered in Hanau, Germany, has opened a new Singapore facility. The location will support the expansion of the company’s Medical Components Division, and is focused on research and development and materials and components for the medical device industry. With this new facility, Heraeus now has 20 manufacturing facilities in Asia, a burgeoning market for medical devices.
“Heraeus has a long tradition of being close to our customers and there has been a strong movement in the last few years by our major cardiac rhythm management customers to relocate their medical device manufacturing to Southeast Asia,” said Nicolas Guggenheim, president of the Medical Components Division. “With the strong Asian investment in local startups, a strong base of new Asian medical device companies is growing in the region, which makes for a powerful mix of companies and innovation. Being the first phase of Heraeus Medical Components’ Asian operations strategy, Singapore is uniquely positioned as a premier high-tech hub providing access to a very technical and well-educated workforce that can support our development efforts. Singapore’s ideal location situated between Malaysia and Indonesia provides both Heraeus and our customers with nearby lower cost manufacturing and production options.”
Kempf also has been named Singapore General Manager and has relocated to Singapore.
Heraeus Medical Components specializes in precious metals, sensors, biomaterials, medical products, dental products, quartz glass, and specialty light sources. Heraeus Medical Components’ U.S. headquarters are in St. Paul, Minn.
