Throughout the Middle East and Russia, we support and serve each of our three segments: BD Medical, BD Life Sciences and BD Interventional. From technical support capabilities right through to manufacturing, genomics work and tackling infectious disease, we work across a whole range of functions and business units to improve life across the Middle East. Our sites in Qatar, Amman, Riyadh, Bahrain, Kuwait, Beirut, Oman, Dubai, Caesarea, and Moscow all contribute to our success in the region, with our associates in each country and city collaborating to innovate best-in-class products.
The BD Technical Scientific Office in Riyadh was established in 1998 to provide product training, technical and scientific support to BD customers in Saudi Arabia. In response to demand in 2004, we increased our product portfolios and expanded our market presence within the growing healthcare and research market segments. Today, the BD office in Riyadh ensures that customers receive the highest quality of support and service.
Sitting at the crossroads of Europe, Middle East and Africa, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a unified area where our BD operations thrive. Surrounded by the Red Sea on the West, Yemen and Oman to the South, the Arabian Gulf, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar on the East, and Jordan, Iraq and Kuwait on the North, working here means grasping the chance to explore a beautifully unique part of the world, while working closely with our sites in other areas of the region.
Across Dubai, our 130+ associates support us in everything from sales and marketing to technical services, all with a goal of improving our innovative work within Integrated Diagnostic Systems, Biosciences, Medication Delivery Solutions, Medication Management Solutions, Diabetes Care and Interventional products. Our Dubai office, along with our field associates based in Lebanon, Egypt, and Algeria bring more than 30 nationalities and over 15 languages into our Middle Eastern business. This shows our truly collaborative and diverse nature.
Established in 1988, the regional office based in Dubai represents BD in the Gulf, Middle East and North Africa region, where products are largely marketed through local distributors. Here, we play a key role as a member of MECOMED, the association for the medical devices industry in the Middle East, which follows similar guidelines to that of Eucomed in Europe and AdvaMed in the United States.
BD Caesarea, formerly Caesarea Medical Electronics Ltd., is a specialty infusion pump manufacturing site in Israel. Acquired in 2017, our Caesarea site is now part of the Global Ambulatory Infusion (GAI) platform alongside Alaris and Alaris Plus. GAI primarily serves patients in non-acute, ambulatory, and home environments due to its low-profile form factor as well as ease of use and therapy versatility.
Our 400 associates based in Israel integrate a team with global capabilities, what enables us to keep growing our operation in the country. We manufacture a variety of ambulatory infusion pumps, specialty infusion set disposables, and accessories that help us meet our commitment to serving more patients worldwide throughout the continuum of care. Your role here means going beyond the ordinary to bring medical products to the world. Here, your career can grow as far as you have the potential to grow it.
BD Israel is our commercial arm in Israel. Established as a direct entity in 2017, our site is now part of the Central European commercial organization. Here, we represent the following business units: Life Science (BDB/IDS) and Medical (MMS/MDS/DC), whilst being internally supported by QMS, finance, logistic and HR functions. Throughout this site, we aim to improve healthcare worker safety and automations, collaborating to surface the best outcomes. As an associate within this site, you can play a big part in ensuring the safety of medical providers through your innovative and life-changing work.
