Earthquake in Italy – supply situation of products from production site Mirandola

On May 20th and 29th 2012, parts of the B. Braun production site in Mirandola have been affected by the massive earthquakes and also by the severe aftershocks in the region Emilia Romagna.

Because of the great damages, it is currently prohibited to enter the building. At the moment it is also not possible to produce the H.E.L.P. Plasmat Futura- and Diapact CRRT Kits in Mirandola. Therefore our production has been relocated and resumed at a close production site. As the public authorities do not allow us to transport the finished products and our safety stock out of the storages in Mirandola, there will be delivery problems concerning certain products.

“To minimize the impact of the earthquake, we are constantly in contact with our colleagues in Italy and other affected suppliers and manufacturers”, explained Dr. Holger Seeberg, Senior Vice President Marketing and Int. Product Sales.

The following products are affected by the delivery problems: The stock of the Diapact® CRRT Kits might be small. In individual cases there may occur some short-term delivery problems and planned rationalisations. Beyond that the dialysis concentrates in bags are not deliverable at the moment. As an alternative, we offer concentrate in canisters from our production site Glandorf in Germany.
