Dexcom, a leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for patients with diabetes, has opened a new European-based headquarters in Edinburgh. The company expects to create more than 60 new jobs for the region within the next three years and provide patients across the EMEA regions Europe, the Middle-East and Africa with access to Dexcom’s world-class technology. The company’s latest offering, the Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM System is the world’s first mobile CGM system. It is a CGM sensor that sits just below the skin’s surface and is attached to a transmitter that wirelessly transfers real-time glucose levels every five minutes to mobile applications via Bluetooth.
The new premises, based in Tanfield, enjoy the support of Scottish Enterprise and serve as the launch pad to distribute Dexcom’s suite of Mobile CGM Systems.
John Lister, General Manager, EMEA, of Dexcom said of the opening, “With its strong history of medical innovation, the incredible talent pool in the city and the strategic inward investment through Scottish Enterprise, Edinburgh really stood out to us as a location. We are excited to bring the benefits of our state-of-the-art glucose monitoring solutions to diabetes patients across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and build our brand and future commercial business from Scotland.”
