The construction of United Imaging's brand new Manufacturing and R&D base of operations officially kicked off. With a total investment of $490 million and a planned footprint of about 420,000 square meters, the company is creating a modern campus that integrates functions such as technology research and development, intelligent manufacturing, international training, global branding etc., and can accommodate 8,000 to 10,000 employees.
It was designed by Gensler, a top global architectural design company that once designed the Shanghai Tower, the world's 3rd tallest building. United Imaging's campus is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
As the global R&D headquarters of United Imaging, the new campus will accelerate R&D and innovation of next-generation products and technologies, and promote the progress from R&D to industrialization of the company's full line of high-end medical equipment, core components and advanced technologies, including PET/MR, PET/CT, MR, CT, DR, RT, etc.
With the Shanghai headquarters at the centre, United Imaging will increase its global production capability with a regional division of labor across the Changzhou factory, Wuhan base and US production base.
