The head office, the new logistics centre and now also the second production facility - with the relocation of its silicone products unit, TRACOE medical has instantly created the optimum conditions for intensifying production of its tracheostomy tubes for neonates and children. The manufacturer and distributor of medical devices and appliances for patients, who have had a tracheostomy or whose larynx has been removed (laryngectomy) and need ventilation (respiratory care), has invested a total EUR 2.5 million to facilitate the relocation from “Am Giener” to “Reichelsheimer Straße 8”, so that all the company divisions are now clustered together in direct proximity to one another. At the new site, TRACOE medical is increasing its usable floor space from around 720 square metres to around 1,000 square metres, spread over two floors. Managing director Dr Thomas Jurisch: “Our company headquarters, the first production facility, research and development, the logistics centre, administration and the silicone production unit are now all located on one street. This brings with it enormous benefits, e.g. much shorter communication channels. However, our primary objective was to create more space and capacity”. Because TRACOE medical has enjoyed a strong and consistent growth for years – and this course will continue.
The medical technology manufacturer has now been established in this small town near Mainz for more than two decades. TRACOE medical meanwhile has around 250 employees and exports its products to 86 countries worldwide. The company, one of the leaders in the industry, is developing continually, consistently increasing production and turnover and consequently also needs more and more space. “Our previous production facility for silicone cannulas for children – a highly specialised, but increasingly important segment – is literally bursting at the seams. A move to larger premises was therefore urgently needed and we are pleased to have found a suitable property in the immediate vicinity”, Dr Jurisch said.
