10/16/2017
Arthrex, Inc., a global orthopedic medical device company, headquartered in Naples, Florida, is launching new manufacturing operations at 5500 Highway 76 in Sandy Springs, South Carolina. The $69 million capital investment is expected to create more than 1,000 new jobs over the next several years in Anderson County.

Arthrex will be constructing a new 200,000-square-foot facility to manufacture its innovative orthopedic devices and implants. Hiring for the new positions should begin in the next 12 to 18 months.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

“Arthrex is pleased to bring its innovative spirit and unique culture to Anderson County, S.C. and we look forward to leveraging the outstanding work done in the area to prepare future employees for high-level manufacturing jobs,” said Arthrex Vice President of Manufacturing Andy Owen.

“South Carolina’s business-friendly climate continues to attract companies in every industry, and we’re proud to welcome Arthrex, Inc. to our growing business community. This a milestone for Anderson County, and we can’t wait to see the difference these jobs will make in the region,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“Not only does our state excel in manufacturing, we’re also increasingly becoming a top choice for companies in the life sciences sector. Arthrex joins an impressive roster of life sciences firms that call South Carolina home, and we look forward to watching them grow in Anderson County for years to come,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.

“This announcement takes our county in an exciting direction. Our goal of establishing a diverse economic base for our citizens is becoming a reality. The presence of this world-class company in our community speaks for who we are in Anderson, and we welcome them with open arms,” Anderson County Councilman Tom Allen, District Four said.
