Our production sites
Fresenius Medical Care has more than 40 production sites around the world. Our largest sites in terms of production volume are in the U.S., Germany, and Japan; an overview of our major production facilities worldwide can be found in chart 2.1.1. We produce hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) equipment at two locations: in Schweinfurt (Germany), and in Walnut Creek, California (U.S.). Other products are manufactured directly in regions where demand for them is particularly high: Dialyzers and the corresponding hollow fibers, for example, are made and assembled at our facility in Ogden, Utah (U.S.), as well as in St. Wendel (Germany), in L’Arbresle (France), and in Buzen (Japan). Concentrates for hemodialysis are manufactured at different sites across the globe, for example in Germany, Italy, Turkey, Morocco, the U.S., Argentina, and Australia. PD solutions and disposable PD products are also produced worldwide. Our production sites in St. Wendel and Ogden provide the majority of our PD solutions. In terms of production volume, our plant in Reynosa (Mexico) is the largest production site for bloodlines both within the Company and worldwide.
