Greatbatch Medical officially opened its 80,000 sq. ft. state of the art orthopaedic manufacturing center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Susan H. Campbell Orthopaedic Center will develop instruments for hip procedures and spine fixation, as well as fracture fixation implants and instrumentation for the largest orthopaedic medical device companies. The new facility will provide Greatbatch Medical with increased capabilities and capacity for future growth.
This $17 million investment is the 3rd project the company has deployed as part of an overall strategy to partner with orthopaedic device makers. In 2010, Greatbatch Medical established an orthopaedic design center in Warsaw, Indiana, providing customers with rapid prototyping capabilities to develop and deliver innovative solutions. In 2011, Greatbatch Medical completed a more than $6 million investment at its Indianapolis, Indiana manufacturing facility where they produce orthopaedic delivery systems.
