American company Hill-Rom is adding a cutting edge innovation centre to its Pluvigner site (350 employees). This centre will work for Pluvigner and provide support for other sites worldwide. This is a magnificent recognition of the innovation capabilities and attractiveness of the Breton site specialised in hospital beds.
In 2014, the plant had to part with 68 employees but since then it has diversified into other activities after first overhauling its premises. The site produces 30,000 beds per year, therapeutic mattresses and furniture (tables, chairs, bedside tables…) for public and private health facilities. Pluvigner delivers to 100 countries on 5 continents and has been registered with the US FDA.
