Construction of a new cleanroom – project support & qualification

at Paul Hartmann AG, Heidenheim

The Hartmann Group is a leading European supplier of medical and hygiene products with a focus on wound treatment, incontinence care and infection prophylaxis. The portfolio is supplemented by products for compression therapy, immobilisation and first aid.

At the Heidenheim site, Paul Hartmann AG planned the construction of new cleanroom production areas in an existing building. Two existing production facilities for the manufacture of modern wound dressings and surgical sets were to be relocated to the newly created premises of the Medical Innovation Centre after completion of the work. In this respect, the existing building was converted into a cleanroom area in compliance with ISO 14644 class 8, in line with class D of the EU GMP Guideline, Annex 1 and the internal requirements of Paul Hartmann AG. A multi-level quality control concept was also established. Within the scope of the conversion, both the cleanroom qualifications and the system qualification of new and existing systems were carried out by Testo Industrial Services.
