Jacobs Tapped for Siemens Walpole Expansion
- Jul 21, 2017
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. and Siemens Healthineers broke ground on the expansion of the Siemens manufacturing and R&D center for laboratory diagnostics in Walpole, Mass.
Jacobs is providing engineering and construction support for more than 30 projects within the facility over a three-year period as part of a master plan to increase production capacity, expand office and lab space, and add a warehouse space at the existing 500,000-square-foot complex.
“Our team brings considerable knowledge to this project, with proven capabilities and 11 years previous on-site experience at Walpole,” said Ken Gilmartin, senior vice president of Life Sciences, Consumer Goods and Manufacturing for Jacobs, in prepared remarks.
Walpole is a main Siemens Healthineers location for developing and manufacturing laboratory diagnostics assays for immunoassay instruments, as well as consumables for molecular and blood gas testing instruments.
