HASOMED expands location in Magdeburg / Ude: "Medium-sized business focuses on research and exports"
State secretary presents funding notice for € 460,000 / 10 new jobs created
HASOMED GmbH is expanding its location in Magdeburg: the manufacturer of medical devices is investing 2.3 million euros in the construction of a building as well as new machinery and equipment. The expansion, which will create ten new jobs, is being supported by the Ministry of Economics as part of the common task on the "Improvement of the regional economic structure" (GRW). Today, State Secretary Dr. Jürgen Ude presented the funding agreement, which is worth 460,000 euros, to Managing Director Matthias Weber.
HASOMED develops and distributes hardware and software for medical and veterinary applications, and currently has approximately 100 employees. The company specialises on solutions for the management of medical practices and neurological rehabilitation. With more than 10,000 users, the "Elefant" software package is now one of the most widely-used management systems for medical practices in Germany. At the start of December, HASOMED was awarded the Hugo-Junkers Prize of the federal state – HASOMED achieved 3rd place in the category of "Most innovative product development / services / business models” for its innovative swallowing measurement system "RehaIngest". The company's products are used worldwide, including in America, Asia and Australia.
As highlighted by State Secretary Dr. Ude: "Hasomed is one of the most innovative companies in Saxony-Anhalt. The Magdeburg-based medium-sized company is also successful in a forward-looking industry because it has always relied heavily on its own development and internationalisation. It is therefore all the more important that the forthcoming expansion shall also entail the further development of the area of research.”
