Medical: Heraeus opens first phase of consolidated medical device campus

Heraeus Medical Components (St. Paul, MN) recently opened the doors to its new North American campus, in a culmination of work to consolidate its five sites in the state to one in St. Paul. To be built in three phases over two years, the project’s initial construction, which is complete, features 60,000-sq-ft of total space, with a 22,000-sq-ft ISO Class 8 clean room where it will undertake wire coiling, injection molding, and clean room assembly.

Phase II of the construction will add an additional 50,000 sq ft of manufacturing space, housing stamped metal housings, and machining, as well as wire forming, straightening, and grinding. In the final phase, the company will add another 50,000-sq-ft building intended to satisfy future growth.

Heraeus currently employs 350 at two buildings in Vadnais Heights, with another three buildings in Lino Lakes, MN. The company said it considered its employees’ commutes when selecting the 30-acre White Bear Township location. Headquartered in Hanau, Germany, Heraeus businesses include precious metals, sensors, dental and medical products, quartz glass, and specialty lighting, with product revenues of $4.4 billion and more than 11,000 employees worldwide.

Home to medical device giants like Medtronic, Boston Scientific, and Guidant (which was acquired by Boston Scientific in 2006), Minnesota was awarded 2341 medical device patents from 2001 to 2005, ranking second among all U.S. states. The state also ranks in the top two in the U.S. for surgery instruments, prostheses, medicators, and receptors, according to the Minnesota Dept. of Employment and Economic Development.
