“We have a long history in New Jersey and this investment solidifies Getinge’s strong commitment to New Jersey and supports leadership training and knowledge sharing with our customers,” says Eric Honroth, President Getinge North America. ”This new facility will host our strong talent pool in New Jersey to continue leadership partnership initiatives within the healthcare industry.”
The leased facility at 1 Geoffrey Way in Wayne, NJ, is the former Toys’R’Us World Headquarters, and within close proximity to the existing Getinge manufacturing-facility in Wayne. The initiative is part of a comprehensive consolidation of Getinge’s three New Jersey facilities in Wayne, Mahwah and Fairfield into two primary locations in Wayne and Mahwah. In total 1,100 employees are located at Getinge’s facilities in NJ with 200 employees slated to move in to the new, leased facility.
“The multi-million USD investment will create a modern, state of the art work environment for our existing and future co-workers. Customers are at the core of everything we do, and our new facility will allow our customers to experience our offerings and collaborate with us to help save more lives,” Eric states.
