Greatbatch Medical has begun operations at its new $17.4-million orthopedic manufacturing center at 4545 Kroemer Road off U.S. 30 in Allen County.
Greatbatch spokesman Christopher Knospe said Greatbatch has moved the company’s more than 100 employees from its Whitley County facility to the new 80,000-square-foot plant. He said Greatbatch expects to add up to 76 more employees over the next four years.
Greatbatch planned to host a ceremonial open house Monday morning.
Greatbatch Medical is a division of Clarence, N.Y.-based Greatbatch Inc., which develops and manufactures a variety of medical-device technologies.
Greatbatch Inc. recently announced it would move its global headquarters to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The move, Knospe said, involves only a handful of top executives, and the remainder of the roughly 675 employees in Clarence will remain in western New York.
