It expects Jiebi circuit, is its large-scale production base in Guangzhou, the construction of a 10-square-foot plant will be put into operation in March next year, digital thermometer the new plant at least 25% of the production capacity designed for disposable medical device market.
The company is also the location of its headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida medical center built into a design certified by ISO13485 100K class clean room.
The medical and life sciences business unit director Gaet Tyranksi said in a telephone interview: "Now we get closer to customers, clinical thermometer can more quickly develop prototypes. In the past, all of our prototype production of medical supplies in Asia. Now we United States also has a prototype production base, reflected in a full production capacity of the environment, we will better meet customer needs, solve problems faster,ear thermometer faster time to market. "
Tyranksi said that the circuit in less than two years ago, Jiebi entered the medical device market, in pursuit of the five years 2014 to make disposable medical equipment sales 300 000 000 -5 million.
He said: "We have three major European and American countries established a cooperative customers are now engaged in product development and prototype manufacturing, in addition to other projects still in preparation," all of which will help Jiebi achieve this goal.
Tyranski said,digital blood pressure monitor these products will be produced in Asia, is expected to be in 2011 and 2012 on the market.
He said: "We are ready to die, a prototype is being developed, and to take advantage of our division in Vienna, Austria's expertise in electronics experience."
Tyranski did not disclose the specific products currently in development, he said, will initially focus on the supply circuit Jiebi delivery devices, surgical instruments, diabetes, and diagnostic markets, and laboratory use disposable products.
Large-scale occupation of disposable medical device market is Jiebi circuit electronics contract manufacturer and strive to shake off the image of a single part of this strategy.
Tyranski said: "We are a well-known two years ago, ECM, and medical equipment in molding what is known on the market yet. But as more and more plastic disposable medical devices and electronic content contained in increasing our to take advantage of expertise in electronics to fill the vacancy. "
Jiebi circuit targeted disposable medical supplies market is valued at 100 billion U.S. dollars of a huge global market, but only 11% (ie 110 million U.S. dollars) this business is outsourced. However, this situation is changing.
Tyranski said that with the increasing pressure on profitability and the increasing shift to the virtual manufacturing, "the number is increasing outsourcing." "Large medical device manufacturers concentrate their efforts on research and development and sales, manufacturing operations are outsourced, do not purchase their own equipment."
According to Jiebi circuit's expectations, disposable medical equipment in its medical business to occupy an increasing proportion of its medical business six months ago changed its name to health care and life sciences business unit.
Tyranski expected for the further implementation of the expansion, Jiebi circuit will be added outside the United States health care production capacity.
He said: "To achieve these sales targets, we need to expand global production footprint. Not all products are suitable for production in Asia. We should explore a different area."
He added that the company by virtue of its size and long-standing expertise in order to meet the market demand has a unique advantage.
Tyranski said: "There are many investment projects are 1 billion or more, they need to be able to provide from design to manufacturing, to full assembly and packaging equipment train services. These large-scale construction projects, the scope wide, with our value proposition is very fit. "
