Making life-saving products for patients with chronic kidney failure.
At the St. Wendel, Saarland, facility Fresenius Medical Care develops and manufactures life-saving products for the treatment of patients with chronic kidney failure. These include dialyzers (artificial kidneys) and systems for peritoneal dialysis (dialysis via the peritoneum). St. Wendel is Fresenius' first — and at the same time the most important — factory for dialyzer production. Large-scale production of the first polysulfone dialyzers started in 1985 at this factory, which has belonged to the company since the mid-1970s.
