why tucson?

Tucson has all the factors necessary for success: a strong labor pool, an appropriate and easily accessible location in Century Park Marketplace, and a community that BD will always view as a partner as we work to meet the needs of U.S. healthcare providers. 

The Tucson facility will be responsible for the sterilization of essential medical devices that are necessary for a functioning healthcare system. As we have all learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain resilience is critical to ensuring that Americans have access to the life-saving care that they need. BD is committed to being part of the solution, and we are making major investments, including with this new facility in Tucson, to improve supply chain resilience, customer service levels, and operational efficiency.

The facility will be centrally located between eight manufacturing sites and three distribution centers. Tucson boasts a strong labor pool and increases our capabilities and capacity in North America and for the U.S. supply chain.

The Tucson facility will play a key role in fulfilling regional sterilization demand for years to come.
