Getinge, Swedish medical technology company, is to let go of up to 150 employees in Eslöv.  The company wishes to enhance its operational efficiency by further concentrating its production to fewer units. As a step in this pursuit, the Extended Care business area intends to relocate the manufacturing of its bath and hygiene products from Eslöv, Sweden, to the production facility in Poznan, Poland, and to a third party.

The planned change will lead to the successive discontinuation of production in Eslöv. All staff in Arjo Hospital Equipment in Eslöv and at Meditechnik in Germany will be affected. About 150 employees in Eslöv and at Meditechnik are expected to be made redundant, the majority in Sweden

The discontinuation is scheduled to commence in mid-2013 and is expected to be completed during the second half of 2014.

Getinge is a medical technology company with operations in the areas of surgery, intensive care, infection control, care ergonomics and wound care. Getinge AB has its head offices located in Getinge, Sweden. The Extended Care’s head office is in Malmö in Sweden.
