Smith & Nephew Advanced Wound Management plans to relocate California facility to Florida

Smith & Nephew Woundcare : 27 June, 2007  (New Product)
The Advanced Wound Management division of Smith & Nephew is planning to move the operations of its negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) business from California to its US headquarters in Largo, Florida.
There will be a phased withdrawal from the facility in California that is expected to close in about six month's time.

The move to Florida is planned as part of the integration of BlueSky Medical Group, which was acquired in May this year. BlueSky's products are part of Smith & Nephew's range of customer solutions for hard-to-heal wounds and are the cornerstone for the development of Smith & Nephew's global NPWT business.

Joe Woody, president of Advanced Wound Management said 'We are very excited about BlueSky's products and the opportunities in the negative pressure wound therapy market. This move is the first step in integrating BlueSky with Smith & Nephew and creates a firm base for our long-term position in this market. It also improves our ability to meet our customers' needs for NPWT products. We are working closely with the employees at BlueSky Medical to ensure a smooth transition.'
