Regarding the medical
device industry, Flextronics works together with 85% of the top medical device
manufactures, as the company offers strong expertise in medical design, validation,
process engineering and manufacturing of high-technological medical devices (Flextronics, 2017b). For DePuy Synthes, Flextronics
manufactures medical cases that are used to put all materials needed for a
surgery, such as implants and instruments. Figure Picture shows one of Flextronics products. Flextronics
uses two manufacturing sites to produces these medical cases in order to be
closer to the two main primary hubs of DePuy Synthes. One manufacturing site is
in Juarez, Mexico and it serves the US market. The second manufacturing site is
in Budapest, Hungary, to serve the rest of the world but delivers to the
primary hub of DePuy Synthes in Selzach, Switzerland. The external planning in
Switzerland works only to serve the non-US market, thus with the Budapest
manufacturing site.

In Budapest, Flextronics
has a Global Service Site which provides post-manufacturing supply chain
logistics service, such as distribution, reverse logistics, repair, product
transformation and service parts logistics services (Flextronics Global Services , 2011). Its customers come
primarily from computing, consumer digital, infrastructure, industrial and
mobile industries. The medical device industry came into place since 2011 when
this site received the ISO 13485 Medical Certification, which gives the
opportunity to produce medical devices with the highest quality systems and
processes (Flextronics Global Services , 2011).
