Market Demand for PDI Solutions Advances Corporate Success

Each year, over one-quarter of a billion people are helped by PDI products and continued innovations, which leads to less suffering and more lives saved. Currently 97.7% of all U.S. hospitals use PDI products. This tremendous progress reinforces customer trust, while further reducing customers’ costs to serve.
Product Innovation and Employee Experience Drive New Headquarters
The new headquarters represents the continued investment in people, PDI’s products and customer solutions, and its dedication to research and development. To fuel continued progress, PDI built a new state-of-the-art lab and innovation center at the core of its new home. In addition, the company’s all new PDI Experiences allows customers and other visitors to experience how products are used in their environment while stimulating discussion and invention of new solutions for the future.
The architecture and physical flow of the new headquarters was purposefully designed to inspire collaboration and a more flexible working environment. The new space also offers associates a state-of-the-art gym and café within a modern space that provides open collaboration areas as well as dedicated meeting spaces.
PDI’s Commitment to Volunteering and Service
