The new development, set in a 3-acre site, will incorporate the company’s latest high-tech manufacturing plant with a bespoke cleanroom, along with assembly and machining facilities to further increase its production capacity and meet global demand for its own medical devices and OEM services. The new premises will also house a modern commercial space enabling the team to work collaboratively all under one roof with enhanced research and development capabilities to accelerate innovation.

Additionally, the company is relocating its pioneering Surgical Skills Lab Centre to Oaktree to continue delivering prestigious courses for health professionals worldwide as part of its mission to strengthen surgical techniques and knowledge on safe and effective use of their products.

Chris Graham, Engineering & Operations Director at BOWA MEDICAL UK, commented:

We are thrilled to have secured planning permission for the new facility which will serve as a state-of-the-art hub for our UK operations and provide a dynamic work environment for our employees. We look forward to seeing our vision come to life and are grateful for the support of our stakeholders including Teignbridge Council, Roach Planning, Pinnacle Architectural Design & Project Management Ltd & Burrington Estates as we move forward with this important milestone.”

Chris added:

“Our commitment to the environment and the local community has been at the forefront of our plans, and we are delighted to continue to contribute to the region while developing a new home for our company sustainably and responsibly”.  

BOWA MEDICAL UK is eagerly anticipating its relocation to the new site, designed with future-proofed capacity and room for increasing headcount. The move will not only bring new employment opportunities to the area but also secure the company’s position for sustained success in the years to come.
