CJPS Medical Systems completes relocation

CJPS Medical Systems completes relocation

CJPS Medical Systems has completed its move of the Remote Patient Monitoring Business that it acquired from Delphi into a new facility in Auburn Hills. Assets purchased from Delphi were relocated from Colorado and Indiana to Michigan where the company will headquarter its homecare business.
Except for growing its sales force and its clinical team, the company has the manpower to handle the manufacturing, testing and shipping of the product at this time. However, according to CEO Christophe Sevrain, if the business grows according to plan, the company should be creating significant jobs.
The product is a small monitor, which is placed at the home of chronically-ill patients, such as patients with congestive heart failure, end-stage renal disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes or other ailments.
The company moved into its new 50,000-square-foot facility at 2333 E. Walton Blvd. in Auburn Hills earlier this month.
