MEDTRONIC celebrates 70 years of production in Isère

03 . 04 . 2018

Pont-de-Claix MEDTRONIC, the production site near Grenoble, is one of the world leaders for the manufacture of surgical needles. The site produces 130 million units every year.

The entire production is sent to the MEDTRONIC assembly plants in the Dominican Republic, the United States and Brazil before being exported to 120 countries.

The 225 employees in Isère continue to be an essential link in this production chain thanks to their unique know-how.

The manufacturing process requires new employees to keep on learning over a long period of time. This involves:

  • Observing the motions of those who have been there for a long time
  • Practice using machines, which have been designed and built specifically for them
