A local medical products company is looking to the future with plans to build a new state of the art headquarters on recently purchased land.

B. Braun Medical Inc. announced Tuesday it has purchased 21.5 acres from Lehigh University in Upper Saucon Twp., Lehigh County.

The land will be the future home of B. Braun headquarters, which will move from its current location at 824 12th Avenue in Bethlehem.

“The purchase reflects the tremendous success and growth B.Braun has witnessed,” said Bruce Heugel, Sr. VP & CFO.

“The new headquarters campus also underscores the sustained commitment and investment B.Braun has made in the Lehigh Valley and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”

B. Braun has operated at its current location for more than 50 years. The B. Braun group of companies employs more than 46,000 in more than 50 countries.

There was no timetable given for construction of the new building.
