Healthcare products business B Braun UK is aiming to boost sales to £145 million after achieving double digit growth rates in both sales and profitability last year.

The German-owned company, which is based at Chapeltown, employs more than 1,100 people in the UK.

“We are committed to our strategic growth strategy which will lead to improved market shares for our UK organisations and businesses.

“We are very confident of achieving our targets, despite the financial pressures facing the NHS. We have excellent people, increasing demand for our existing portfolio of products and services and are committed to introduce further innovation and efficiency.”
