US-based developer, manufacturer and distributor of continuous glucose monitoring systems, DexCom has opened its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The new office will support various Dexcom business functions for EMEA while generating more than 60 new jobs for the region in the next three years.
It will be supported by the Scottish Enterprise and will serve as the platform to distribute Dexcom’s suite of Mobile CGM Systems into EMEA markets.
Scottish Development International managing director Paul Lewis said: “With exceptional strengths in both life sciences and digital technologies, Scotland is the ideal location for Dexcom’s European headquarters.
“The company will now join the many international investors who benefit from our competitive business environment, strong skills base and effective support network, which help make Scotland the top performing location for inward investment after London.
“We look forward to supporting Dexcom’s ambitious growth plans for Europe, the Middle-East and Africa.”
The new office will open access for the patients across the EMEA regions to Dexcom’s products such as CGM sensor that is fitted below the skin's surface and is attached to a transmitter which wirelessly transfers real-time glucose levels after every five minutes to mobile applications through Bluetooth.
