Smith & Nephew

Location, quality of talent and world-class infrastructure were key drivers for Smith & Nephew to choose Singapore as the base for the Asia Pacific regional business.

Smith & Nephew is a diversified advanced medical technology business that holds leadership positions in orthopaedics reconstruction, advanced wound management, sports medicine and trauma.


In addition to the regional office, in November 2016, Smith & Nephew established a Product Development Innovation Centre to enable regionally based technology evaluation and development, early-stage product design, prototype feasibility and product testing.


The geographical location of the Product Development Innovation Centre in Singapore enables closer access to customer needs in the emerging markets and ensures focused development of Smith & Nephew’s product portfolio appropriate for developing economies.


“Singapore is synonymous with excellence, a model in terms of vision, infrastructure and streamlined processes,” said a senior leader from Smith & Nephew. “It has always been an attractive destination for many medical technology and pharmaceutical companies.”


“It has well-established infrastructure and a strong global reputation in biomedical sciences, and a large pool of quality talent.”
