Enovis (NYSE:ENOV) announced that it opened a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas last week.
The company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility’s opening on Sept. 27. President of Enovis Surgical, Louis Vogt, and VP of Operations, Shayne Myhand, attended the event. The 40,000-square-foot ISO 9001-certified center complements Enovis’ existing 75,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.
Wilmington, Delaware-based Enovis said the new facility allows it to employ an additional 100 team members. It expects the plant to support increased demand for its reconstructive hip, knee and shoulder implants.
Enovis said new roles at the facility center around distribution support, metal finishing, CNC machining and clean room operations. The company currently employs more than 5,000 people across the world. Earlier this year, the company launched the ARVIS FDA-cleared augmented reality surgical guidance system.
“For the past 30 years, our surgical business and employees have thrived in the wonderful city of Austin,” Vogt said in a news release. “Now that our company is poised to become one of the world’s leading medical technology innovators, we are thrilled to expand our Austin footprint and support this global growth with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that provides great jobs while helping us accelerate our positive patient impact – the ultimate goal as Enovis.”
