Fostering Job Growth and Development in New Jersey

In May, Lt. Governor Guadagno joined Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics in Flanders for the dedication of its new expanded manufacturing plant. Over the next ten years, the facility will lead to the creation of 525 new jobs – approximately 100 of which are already in place.  Notably, 16% of the new employment opportunities have been filled by veterans.

“When we heard that Siemens wanted to expand its operations, the Business Action Center (BAC) and I worked to ensure that the expansion took place here in New Jersey.  We developed a plan to make the numbers work for the company, and BAC coordinated with the Department of Labor to help Siemens recruit New Jersey employees,” said Lt. Governor Guadagno. 

The new facility nearly doubles the size of the original 160,000-square-foot Flanders site with the addition of more than 147,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse, office and lab space.  A subsidiary of Siemens AG, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Inc. is a global leader in in vitro diagnostics, providing healthcare professionals in hospital, reference, and physician office laboratories and point-of-care settings with the vital information required to accurately diagnose, treat and monitor patients. 

Siemens began construction on the new facility in 2013 after the Economic Development Authority awarded Siemens a Grow NJ award worth approximately $36.6 million tied to the creation of 525 jobs over ten years.
