EKF-diagnostic GmbH part of new medical engineering network
On September 10th 2014, 19 companies met at a start-up event for a new medical and sanitary engineering group in Saxony-Anhalt. As one of the most successful manufacturers of medical technology in Saxony-Anhalt EKF Diagnostics will be an active member of that newly founded cluster.
The main goal is to strengthen and further develop the industry within this region by bringing together small and large enterprises.
According to Steffen Borlich, CEO of EKF-diagnostic GmbH, the cluster should lead to synergistic effects like cooperation within the field of research, exchange of experiences, joint projects, symposia and conferences.
80 participants attended the meeting which shows the demand and acceptance of such collaboration. The most important common ground became clear very quickly: All companies are filling niche markets and are specialized in one particular field of medical engineering.
That fact practically erases competition and guides to perfect preconditions for a productive cooperation which leads to thinking outside the box and will strongly affect the medical engineering sector in Saxony-Anhalt.
