Medical device producer Amsino Medical Group held the grand opening for the company’s new, $32 million North American distribution & manufacturing hub in Aurora, Illinois. The project is expected to create 110 permanent jobs.
The global medical and healthcare products company established a new 222,000 square foot facility that will house all production and distribution of medical devices and products, and which relocates warehouse operations in California. Construction on the multi-phase distribution center, located at 700 Enterprise Street in Aurora, will also house a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
“Amsino Medical Group is thrilled to expand our presence in Illinois as we work to fulfill a growing need for medical device and supply orders seen throughout the pandemic,” said Amsino Medical Group CEO Richard Lee. “Illinois has always been an important component of our manufacturing pipeline, and we are thrilled to expand here and to make the state the site of our new NA operations hub. Thanks to the support we received from the state, we are able to tap into local resources and talent that will help us grow and scale quickly to meet the demands our customers across the country face today.”
Amsino’s new investment into Illinois is supported with an EDGE agreement provided by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). DCEO will partner with the company and the Worknet DuPage Career Center to leverage virtual jobs fairs, workforce development training dollars, and strategies to help onboard talent for new roles, which include management, technicians, quality control, machine, and warehouse operators. Hiring has already started, creating over 30 new jobs toward the new 110 full-time, permanent roles announced at their Aurora and Vernon Hills locations.
“Illinois is proud to support the growth of Amsino Medical Group, which continues to advance production on life saving medical devices, while creating jobs for our residents here at home,” said DCEO Acting Director Sylvia Garcia. “Under Governor Pritzker’s leadership, Illinois continues to attract new companies to our state, thanks to our skilled talent, award winning R&D and education and modernizing infrastructure, and other resources that can only be found here. Amsino is in good company with nearly 20 other life sciences companies choosing to invest and grow here last year alone. We congratulate them on this important milestone, and we look forward to supporting their success for years to come.”
