Anova provided quality control and turnover package management services for Baxter, the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of hospital supplies and medical/lab products and distribution. The 18-month engagement provided Baxter with five trained staff to oversee the new construction of the $300 million manufacturing and production facility in Los Angeles, CA.
Baxter’s Bioscience business worked on a six-year, multi-million-dollar investment plan to upgrade its Los Angeles manufacturing site. This program included a replacement manufacturing facility, as well as a new cafeteria, training facilities and office space. The new buildings that were part of this enhancement plan will fulfill LEED Silver standards. Additionally, this program took advantage of the L.A. Department of Building and Safety’s Parallel-Design Permitting Process that allows for the design and permitting process to run concurrently.
