United Imaging Healthcare (UIH), an international leader in advanced medical imaging and radiotherapy equipment, announced its official launch in the United States, including the establishment of a U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Houston.
UIH made its U.S. market debut at the 104th RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting in Chicago.
“The United States is the largest, and most important, medical device market in the world and we are proud to make our debut at RSNA this year – we are officially open for business in the United States,” said Dr. Xue Min, UIH’s chairman of the board and chief executive officer.
“It is UIH’s goal to provide premium products and services for customers around the globe. In the past five years, we have established R&D centers in the U.S. that are exploring cutting-edge technology, as well as research on CT, MR, PET-CT and RT products. We are building our U.S. regional headquarters in Houston, which will integrate R&D, production, training and marketing services to better serve our customers in the U.S.”
The newly established U.S. team is made up of experienced industry professionals who will provide customer-centric services to address the specific needs of local markets.
UIH’s North American business is led by Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey M. Bundy, Ph.D., who has more than 20 years of industry experience and previously held positions in sales, marketing, and R&D, including serving as a global CEO in the imaging business from 2011 to 2015.
“UIH is a dynamic company focused on innovative technology. Our commitment to advancements in medical imaging and radiology and our ability to innovate at a rapid pace are core strengths,” said Bundy. “I’m inspired by UIH’s dedication to creating new levels of access for the underserved, and we are committed to be an agent of positive change in our industry, through our product and services offerings.”
UIH’s North American production center is located in Houston, adjacent to the headquarters and the research and development center. This wholly-owned facility is expected to produce multiple UIH product lines by the end of 2019.
The establishment of the Houston production and research and development facility follows the establishment of U.S. research and development centers in Cleveland, Ohio and in Concord, California.
