Sites Medical LLC, a medical device company serving the orthopedic industry, announced plans today to expand its operations in Columbia City, Ind., creating up to 45 new jobs by 2017.
“The motor of the medical device industry is centered in northeast Indiana,” says Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corp. “Top graduates from universities across our state find a place with companies like Sites Medical. Indiana’s workforce is well equipped with the know-how to help high-growth companies reach their full potential, and with our low tax business environment and central location, it’s clear why medical device companies consider Indiana a state that works.”
The company will invest $1.9 million to lease and equip a facility in Columbia City, expanding its total footprint in the community by approximately 8,000 ft2. Sites Medical plans to grow its in-house services to include specialty testing, prototyping, specialty manufacturing, and quality and regulatory services this spring. The company anticipates beginning to hire engineers, technicians, and inspectors later this year.
“Indiana, Whitley County in particular, has a great culture and talented workforce,” says Greg Stalcup, president and chief executive officer of Sites Medical. “This, combined with the support provided by local and state government, has made expanding our business in this community possible.”
Founded in 2008, Sites Medical develops, evaluates, and markets technologies and services within the medical marketplace. The company, which is ISO 13485 certified, distributes its products and technologies through orthopedic companies of all sizes around the world, currently specializing in serving companies in sports medicine, joint reconstruction, spine, and orthopedic oncology.
