The company produces laminar flow benches (workstations) and fume hoods for laboratories, and incubators for fertility clinics. The company purchases from Lithuanian and Chinese suppliers the components needed to manufacture the equipment. After completing the expansion at the Kaunas LEZ, the company will annually produce about 120 laminar flow benches (workstations) as well as 200–300 incubators.

UAB Esco Medical Technologies has been operating in Kaunas for 10 years, and at present has 75 employees. After the new facility is built, it is planned to hire an additional 10 employees.
