Getinge brings together chemistry and instrument decontamination in Derby

With the opening of the new facilities in St. Modwen Park Derby, Getinge is bringing together its chemistry and instrument decontamination business, and its UK sales offices, service functions, and logistics operations.

Stéphane Le Roy, President, Surgical Workflows, explained: “With the growth of our chemistry production volumes, and the density of our innovation roadmap, we took the decision to invest into a larger, 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.”

Getinge is the first medtech company to move into the growing St. Modwen Park Derby, where a showroom and training area is incorporated in the new facility. Avril Forde, President, North Europe Region, added: “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 will enable us to demonstrate Getinge’s technologies and vast portfolio to existing and future customers, strengthening further our ambitions to be a ‘partner of choice’.

The official opening will take place on 31 January, hosted by Mattias Perjos, President & CEO, Avril Forde, Stéphane Le Roy, and Bob Newsome, MD at the Centre of Excellence for Chemistry.

Bob Newsome explained: “During the opening we will give guests including our Board of directors, representatives from Derby City Council, and St. Modwen Park Derby, as well as media representatives, a tour showcasing the 79,000 ft2 production, warehouse, laboratory, showroom, training area, and office space. We will also have a traditional cutting-the-ribbon-exercise. The new facility provides the very best environment for us to take full advantage of the combined competencies in chemistry and machine technology from within our organisation. We are confident this will drive innovation, resulting in new products and improved solutions that complement market trends and customer needs.”
