“Stryker’s in great shape,” company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kevin A. Lobo said Wednesday, following Stryker’s 37th annual shareholders meeting in downtown Kalamazoo.
“We continue to be a high-growth company, with tremendous innovations,” he said. “We are very focused on our mission of making health care better. We have great product pipelines across the organization. We had a great first quarter and we raised our full-year sales guidance and adjusted earnings guidance. So it’s a good time to be at Stryker.”
Lobo provided an annual state-of-the-company report for more than 400 stockholders, company executives and others at the Radisson Plaza Hotel & Suites in downtown Kalamazoo. They gathered in the Grand Ballroom of the hotel and business center after coursing through a lobby with exhibits of dozens of company products.
Those products included technology that originated with Stryker as well as tech acquired through the acquisition of such companies as defibrillator maker Physio-Control International Inc. and Sage Products, a developer of products to prevent hospital-acquired conditions.
