Siemens Healthcare opened its state-of-the-art refurbished systems factory in Wood Dale, Ill. The 29,190 sq. foot facility will refurbish a broad array of previously owned Siemens medical imaging systems, including its portfolio of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and molecular imaging (MI) units.
The Wood Dale factory is approximately 10,000 sq. ft. larger than Siemens’ previous Chicago-area refurbished systems facility, which has been located in nearby Hoffman Estates since October 2003. Siemens’ Wood Dale site puts the company under the same roof as its primary refurbished systems service provider, Hegele Logistic LLC.
“Our new refurbished systems factory in Wood Dale optimizes the value stream of our processes and material flow by bringing Siemens and Hegele Logistic together in one state-of-the-art facility and elevating us to a higher performance level as we continue to provide customers with Siemens’ ecoline family of premium economical and ecologically friendly refurbished systems,” says Elisabeth Staudinger, CEO of Refurbished Systems, Siemens Healthcare. “The additional square footage of the Wood Dale factory also provides Siemens with ample room for expansion as we continue to grow our thriving refurbished systems business.”
The Wood Dale factory is Siemens’ only refurbished systems facility in the U.S., which is one of the largest markets for preowned imaging systems.
