Next summer, Fortimedix Surgical will settle at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen. The move from the current location in Nuth is planned for the third quarter of 2019, when the construction of the new building at the campus has completed.

The first product, symphonX™, is being used in leading hospitals in the United States and Europe for abdominal laparoscopic surgery. By leveraging smart technology and innovative concepts, the company brings the current surgical procedures to the next level. “We are conscious that this is only possible by challenging the status quo, unlocking knowledge through co-creation and by investing in various ways of collaboration.”

“The Brightlands culture of innovation and collaboration is perfectly in line with our company culture and fits our ambitions and strategy very well.” said Wout Bijker, CEO of Fortimedix Surgical.
