Raumedic Appoints New CEO for U.S. Headquarters
Raumedic AG, Helmbrechts, Germany, announces the appointment of William F. Gearhart as Chief Executive Officer for the group’s US headquarters. The management executive will be responsible for developing the Raumedic brand into an industry leading standard for high quality, value added medical and pharmaceutical products in North America.
Located at Mills River, North Carolina, Raumedic Inc. is equipped with a full-service development and production center for polymer components and systems. After the set-up of a cleanroom, several polymer extrusion lines, molding as well as assembly facilities in 2016, the preconditions for production startup have been established. Raumedic has invested more than USD 11 million in the construction of the modern building in Mills River. A total of about USD 27 million will be reached by 2022. Reflecting on this markable investment as well as on future expenditures, the newly appointed CEO indicated: “We are committed to meet customer demands in the most professional way possible and thus strongly rely on the human factor. While we started with a very competent workforce of over 50 people who were already on-site, we want to double the number of our employees in the years to come. Our specialists’ profound know-how in processing all popular medical-grade thermoplastics and high temperature polymers and their ability to fulfill even very exceptional requirements enable us to pursue our expansion strategy.”
