Innovation changes lives
ResMed develops, manufacturers and markets medical solutions to treat and manage sleep-disordered breathing, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic respiratory conditions. Founded in Australia in 1989, this global company now helps patients in over 100 countries through ResMed offices and a network of distributors.
ResMed’s President of Global Operations and Innovation, Andrew Price, said the organisation begun as a medical device company that operated in the ‘business of breathing’ and was originally known as ResCare.
“We focused on producing a medical device for treating obstructive sleep apnea.
“Since then we’ve diversified in our business, expanding into fields of respiratory medicine and cardiology and drawing on the latest advancements in telemedicine technology and health informatics.”
“Our growth strategy is underpinned by the aim to change the lives of 20 million people by 2020, focusing on improving patient quality of life; preventing chronic disease progression; and reducing healthcare system costs.”
ResMed’s strategy sets out its aspirations to grow its core markets in sleep-disordered breathing; grow respiratory care and emerging markets; and accelerate and expand into new markets to ensure sustainable growth into the future.
ResMed’s headquarters for manufacturing, operations, and research and development is located in Bella Vista in Western Sydney with global head office based in San Diego, USA. The company works closely with several universities in the Sydney area and has an internship and graduate program.
Advantage of a Western Sydney location
“We chose to locate our headquarters within Norwest Business Park as it was large enough to accommodate a campus style environment which includes manufacturing, engineering and other professional and administrative functions”.
“The potential for growth in the region and the expanding hub of skilled people was also crucial to our decision to locate our Australian headquarters in Western Sydney.”
