Siemens Healthineers to Build £250M MRI Superconducting Magnet Facility in Oxford, UK

Siemens Healthineers has announced a new £250 million ($314 million) facility in North Oxfordshire to design and manufacture superconducting MRI magnets, supporting more than 1,300 skilled jobs.

Scheduled to open in 2026, the new facility will be the UK’s first major production site for Siemens Healthineers’ new DryCool technology, which reduces the amount of helium needed in an MRI scanner from 1,500 liters to less than one liter. The new factory will include a research and development center responsible for new technologies such as the design and manufacture of some of the world’s smallest and lightest whole-body scanners.

I am delighted that Siemens Healthineers has chosen Oxfordshire for its new facility, reinforcing the region’s status as a leader in healthcare and R&D,” said Rishi Sunak, UK Prime Minister. MRI technology plays a vital role in the diagnosis of disease and this factory will be the global center for our innovative low-helium magnet technology,” said Bernd Montag, chief executive of Siemens Healthineers.
