Smith & Nephew to relocate Florida based manufacturing unit

Smith & Nephew Woundcare : 14 August, 2007  (New Product)
Smith & Nephew's Advanced Wound Management Division has announced that it will be relocating or outsourcing the manufacturing currently based in Largo, Florida, USA.
This relocation project will take place over the next 18 to 24 months and it is expected that the manufacturing in Largo will cease during 2009.

Smith & Nephew strategy for the Advanced Wound Management business has three key components; an increased focus on fast growing segments of the woundcare market, increasing sales efforts in the USA and reducing costs to increase the competitiveness of the business.

Smith & Nephew is purchasing land to provide manufacturing capacity in China and plans for construction of a facility are underway. Allevyn adhesive dressings, part of Smith & Nephew's leading exudate management product range, will be produced in China.

The production of Allevyn products in Hull will continue. Other Smith & Nephew products currently manufactured in Largo will be outsourced.
