Global Presence

Introduction

A global presence and infrastructure is one of Baxter's key strengths. In 2013, nearly 60 percent of Baxter's sales and workforce were outside the United States. With manufacturing facilities located throughout the world, Baxter's philosophy of manufacturing locally allows the company to better manage production, costs and pricing.

North America Baxter has many facilities in the United States including Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina and Puerto Rico. Baxter's headquarters are located in Deerfield, Illinois, approximately 30 miles north of Chicago.
