As part of its India expansion plan, Siemens Healthineers will integrate manufacturing, technology, and innovation functions at Bengaluru. Accordingly, the company has set up a new manufacturing facility that is co-located with its R&D center to better leverage synergies while developing offerings aligned to the future needs of its customers. Spread over an area of 5,000 square feet, it is the biggest for the diagnostics imaging company globally. Operations will start immediately in this new ISO13485 (2016) certified state-of-the-art facility.
The manufacturing facility will have two production lines: mobile C-arm for surgery called Cios Fit and computed tomography (CT) systems based on its Somatom go. platform. The company would soon be going worldwide with the locally manufactured C-arm and start selling the product beginning with emerging markets. The Cios Fit equipment was ideated and developed from scratch at the Bengaluru R&D facility, which provides powerful imaging for orthopedic trauma, spine, pain management, gastro and urology surgeries, whereas the CT systems will be assembled in the India plant. Siemens Healthineers’ other medical imaging facilities are located in the US, Germany, Brazil, and China.
