Mako Medical Laboratories Opens Western U.S. Hub In Albuquerque, New Mexico

Mako Medical Laboratories will partner with Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute to establish a new location in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company plans to create 100 new jobs.

According to the New Mexico Economic Development Department, the new jobs include laboratory technicians, administrative staff, and sales and marketing positions. The company, based in Raleigh, North Carolina, choose New Mexico for its first location in the Western U.S.

Mako Medical Laboratories provides medical lab testing for doctors and medical professionals all across the country. Through this partnership, Mako will help Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute meet its medical testing and laboratory needs, while enabling Mako to better serve customers throughout the Western U.S. as well, state officials said.

"New Mexico's open and welcoming attitude and business environment helped us make the decision to locate in Albuquerque," said Joshua Arant, COO/Co-founder of Mako Medical. "We could not be happier with our experience and look forward to operating in the state and hiring New Mexico workers."

As an incentive, Mako will receive $150,000 in Local Economic Development Act funding. LEDA serves as New Mexico's closing fund and is an important tool for helping businesses already here expand and succeed while bringing new companies into the state as well.

"We're proud to welcome one of the fastest growing companies in their field to New Mexico," Governor Susana Martinez said. "We're doing all we can to help businesses grow and thrive while recruiting new companies like Mako to our state. Encouraging results like these show that New Mexico is becoming more competitive with other states as we seek to grow and diversify our economy."
