(75,832 sq. ft.) of floor space and will accommodate around 200 skilled employees starting from production, manufacturing engineering, quality, operations, supply, and logistics.?The site will be?located?in Ely, in the vicinity of the Company’s headquarters in Cambridge.

CMR Surgical CEO, Per Vegard, mentioned that they are witnessing strong demand for Versius in markets across the globe and their commitment to building a new manufacturing facility indicates this while focusing on their goal to transform surgery.

CMR Surgical COO, Barrington D’Arcy, mentioned that establishing a top-class manufacturing facility to cater to the worldwide demand was a reasonable step forward for CMR.
