Medical Factory Wins "Factory of the Year" Award 2012


B. Braun's Medical Factory WAP, which was extended by Wilford Schupp in 2009, was now awarded the "Factory of the Year 2012" prize. It was named best in the category "large-volume production" in a competition held by business paper "Produktion" and consultancy firm A.T. Kearney.


Up to now, more than 200 billion sets for infusion therapy have been produced in the plant. In addition to the production the building houses the B. Braun visitor centre, which allows insights into the production from a glazed gallery. Read more about the building's architectural aspects here.
