Siemens Opens Refurbished Systems Factory in Suburban Chicago

State-of-the-art Wood Dale, Ill., facility to refurbish Siemens MR, CT and MI systems

July 6, 2012 — Siemens Healthcare celebrated the grand opening of its new refurbished systems factory in Wood Dale, Ill., on June 20. The 29,190-square-foot facility, located at 855 N. Wood Dale Rd., will refurbish a broad array of previously owned Siemens medical imaging systems, including its internationally renowned portfolio of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and molecular imaging (MI) units.

The new Wood Dale factory is approximately 10,000 square feet larger than Siemens’ previous Chicago-area refurbished systems facility, which had been located in nearby Hoffman Estates since October 2003. Siemens’ Wood Dale site puts the company under the same roof as its primary refurbished systems service provider, Hegele Logistic LLC.

“Our new refurbished systems factory in Wood Dale optimizes the value stream of our processes and material flow by bringing Siemens and Hegele Logistic together in one state-of-the-art facility and elevating us to a higher performance level as we continue to provide customers with Siemens’ ecoline family of premium economical and ecologically friendly refurbished systems,” says Elisabeth Staudinger, CEO of refurbished systems, Siemens Healthcare. “The additional square footage of the Wood Dale factory also provides Siemens with ample room for expansion as we continue to grow our thriving refurbished systems business.”

The Wood Dale factory is Siemens’ only refurbished systems facility in the United States, which is one of the largest markets for pre-owned imaging systems. 

For the past 11 years, Siemens has offered a wide range of refurbished systems that includes X-ray, angiography, CT, MI, MRI and ultrasound. Known as Siemens’ ecoline systems, these economical and environmentally friendly refurbished products can reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 20,000 tons per year, since ecoline systems boast an average material reuse rate of 98 percent. Each ecoline system undergoes Siemens’ five-step Proven Excellence refurbishment process to ensure optimal form and function.
