NuVasive, Inc., a medical device company focused on developing minimally disruptive surgical products and procedures for the spine, announced today that NuVasive Manufacturing, LLC., (NML) will expand its workforce by more than 25 percent in 2014.
Acquired by NuVasive in May 2013, the 35,000-square-foot manufacturing facility produces the Company's PEEK, Armada®, and Precept® implants. The manufacturer currently employs more than 70 people and is hiring for positions ranging from skilled workers to senior management.
As NuVasive grows revenue toward $1 billion and beyond, NML's skilled workforce will be integral to NuVasive's initiative to reduce the time from conception of an innovative idea to market introduction.
On December 18, 2013, NuVasive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Alex Lukianov was joined by the Mayor of Fairborn, Dan Kirkpatrick; Economic Development Director, Chris Wimsatt; Community Development Director, Mike Gebhart; and Fairborn Chapter Executive Director, Paul Newman, at NML for the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
"I am very excited to personally welcome NuVasive Manufacturing to the NUVA Family," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Alex Lukianov. "NML is vital to our market share taking strategy, and our drive to reduce product cost and improve operating profitability. NML is truly a world-class facility and I look forward to the contributions from our growing team of skilled Shareowners in Dayton. I am also thrilled that NuVasive can contribute to the growth of manufacturing jobs in the Dayton area."
Prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony, Mayor Kirkpatrick stated, "I look forward to a long-term and rewarding relationship with NuVasive and I am very pleased that NML will bring new jobs to the Dayton and Fairborn area."
