B. Braun drops plans to expand headquarters over device tax costs

AdvaMed SmartBrief | Nov 26, 2014

B. Braun Medical has canceled plans for a $40 million headquarters expansion project because the medical device tax has cost the company $13 million annually for the past two years, said CEO Caroll Neubauer. The medical device company had to freeze salaries last year, also because of the device tax, but has avoided layoffs and cuts in its research and development budget, Neubauer said.
