BD is looking for new employees with a passion for wellness

In the media | November 16, 2022

BD Kiestra will expand its production from mid-April 2023 with new generation equipment called InoquIA, an automated system for processing microbiological samples. This expansion not only requires a rebuilding of the plant, the company is also looking for new employees.

BD Kiestra designs and manufactures innovative, high-quality automated laboratory systems for medical bacteriology laboratories. By automating laboratories, large quantities of samples are processed quickly and reliably, resulting in faster treatment of patients. The company's mission is therefore: to improve the health of people around the world.

Informal working atmosphere

This innovative company employs passionate, committed colleagues who have a strong bond with the organisation. There is a pleasant, informal working atmosphere where employees are given the opportunity to show initiative and come up with creative solutions. We also offer our employees various opportunities for career and personal development within the BD Group.

In the past, production of this equipment in the Netherlands was done at Kiestra in Drachten.

After the acquisition in 2012 by a US medical products manufacturer, part of the production was outsourced to a machine builder in Canada. The incubation and analysis components were still produced in Drachten. The production of the InoquIA creates growth, confidence in the future and more jobs. The company is looking for around 20 to 25 assembly workers.
