New Deantronics, an international, medical device technology manufacturer, is establishing its United States facility in the Spanish Springs Business Center in Washoe County, Nev.
The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) announced on Sept. 25 that New Deantronics (ND), an international, medical device technology manufacturer is establishing its United States facility in the Spanish Springs Business Center in Washoe County, Nevada.
The company is breaking ground on a purpose-built 200,000 sq. ft. facility for research/development and manufacturing. The facility also will include a medical device incubation center for local medical device start-ups. New Deantronics estimates it will invest more than $40 million for construction and equipment and will generate more than 200 new jobs.
New Deantronics was founded in 1985 in San Francisco, Calif., and is focused on medical/surgical technology to advance healthcare and quality of life for patients. New Deantronics has established its position by investing in innovation, quality and its employees. Its medical device products are widely-used in general surgery, neurosurgery, cardiology, orthopedics and aesthetics, according to the company.
The company currently operates an engineering and manufacturing facility located in New Taipei City, Taiwan, and will open a second manufacturing facility in Chiayi County, Taiwan, in 2019 in addition to the Nevada (Greater Reno-Sparks) 14-acre technology campus in 2020.
The Nevada campus will provide R&D, manufacturing, R4R (return for repair), capital equipment exchanges and a medical device incubation center. The company will hire to fill positions in design, electrical and mechanical engineering as well as technicians, facilities, maintenance, quality assurance, warehouse and manufacturing assembly.
“The decision to establish an R&D and manufacturing center in the Reno-Sparks area is the result of a multi-year location search and supports our 'Go Global' vision, said Jane Liu, CEO New Deantronics. “The support and assistance received from so many people and organizations here convinced us to select Reno-Sparks to be our new home in the U.S. We hope to be an integral part of establishing a long-term medical device industry infrastructure, bringing together industry, academia, healthcare providers and others benefiting Reno-Sparks and the global medical device community.”
“We absolutely believe the addition of New Deantronics to Washoe County is a strategic choice not only for their business, but for the quality of life it offers their entire team,” said John Slaughter, Washoe County manager. “Our region continues to attract some of most innovative companies from around the world due to our vibrant landscape and thriving communities. New Deantronics is another great example of our tech industry booming, and we welcome them to Washoe County.”
“We are thrilled that New Deantronics will soon be breaking ground on their technology campus in the Spanish Springs Business Center,” said Sparks Mayor Geno Martini. “Having this award-winning medical device technology manufacturer is a win for our region both in expertise and job creation.”
