GE Healthcare rolled out its first Computed Tomography (CT) scan system manufactured at its facility.
GE Healthcare global President and CEO John Dineen, speaking at the roll out ceremony said ‘HiSpeed Dual’ dual CT scan system priced at 200,000 dollars was one of the fastest selling system in the world.
‘In India we have a capacity to manufacture 200-300 machines but at present we are aiming to sell 40 in the first year. The CT systems made at the facility costs up to 40 per cent less than the developed market,’ he said.
The company today announced the expansion of operations at its Whitefield facility on the outskirts of the city saying the endeavour was to locally serve its customers and leveraging the price-value equation in India.
Mr Dineen said it was a giant leap for the company to manufacture high end imaging systems in India. In the past GE Healthcare had designed, developed and manufactured ultrasound, ECG, X-ray systems and many sub-systems.
‘We made an early start in India and this had helped us set up three world class manufacturing plants using the local expertise and engineering skills,’ he said.
GE Healthcare India President and CEO V Raja said many new hospitals and diagnostic centres were being set up in tier II and tier III towns and cities across India and were looking for affordable and reliable systems.
