Bethlehem-based manufacturer B. Braun Medical Inc. announced Tuesday that it has bought 21.5 acres in Upper Saucon Township where it plans to build a new “state-of-the-art” headquarters campus.
Despite the planned headquarters move, the company said through a news release that it has no plans of abandoning its existing headquarters building on the West Side of Bethlehem at 12th Avenue off of W. Union Boulevard.
That building “has served B.Braun for over 50 years, and will remain operational for many years to come,” the news release said.
The new tract in Upper Saucon Township was purchased from Lehigh University. A purchase price was not mentioned in the news release.
“The purchase reflects the tremendous success and growth B.Braun has witnessed,” said Bruce Heugel, Sr. VP & CFO. “The new headquarters campus also underscores the sustained commitment and investment B.Braun has made in the Lehigh Valley and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”
B. Braun, a leader in infusion therapy and pain management, develops, manufactures, and markets innovative medical products and services to the healthcare industry. The B.Braun Group of Companies employs more than 46,000 employees in more than 50 countries throughout the world.
