In August 2013, Changzhou's first British medical device enterprise, Intersurgical settled down in the local biomedical park inside Changzhou National Hi-Tech District (CND). The total investment is 9,000,000 british pounds, with the registered capital of 3,600,000 british pounds. The plot is located in the intersection of South Liaohe Road and East Yulong Road in Xuejia Town of CND. Its construction is expected to break the ground in November 2013.
Intersurgical was first founded in 1982 and it has become a leading designer, manufacturer and seller of respiratory care products for use in anaesthesia, intensive care and airway management. Currently, Intersurgical has branch companies in the United States, Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Russia, South Africa, Japan, the Philippines, etc. In addition to the two manufacturing bases, it has set up two production facilities outside the United Kingdom, in Lithuania and Italy, and two projects in Changzhou and Brazil are under construction now. Intersurgical took the first step in non-PVC anesthesia breathing products globally for the reduction in environmental damage and body harm. Currently, the company has more than 2,000 employees globally and the annual revenue has exceeded 140 million Euros.
The high-end disposable anesthesia breathing products from Intersurgical entered the Chinese market in 2008, but Intersurgical Medical Device (Changzhou) Co., Ltd. is the first production base in China, which is wholly-owned by Intersurgical Group. The new facility mainly produces four major categories of products, including oropharyngeal airway management, anesthesia, intensive care and oxygen, aerosol therapy products.
