Swiss-Based IMT Analytics Establishes St. Petersburg, Florida, Operations
The new U.S. sales and service center, located at 9720 Executive Center Drive N in Pinellas County, will be equipped with a calibration laboratory offering domestic calibration and repair services for all of its products.
“The area’s established Life Sciences & Medical Technologies industry base, excellent workforce potential, and readily accessible Tampa International Airport made the Pinellas County location an easy choice,” said IMT Managing Director Daniel Benz. “This is the perfect fit for us, and we are excited to launch our U.S. expansion in the city of St. Petersburg!”
IMT worked closely with Pinellas County Economic Development and the St. Petersburg Economic Development Corporation.
“We introduced IMT to the City of St. Petersburg so Daniel could learn about programs like grants for job creation and talent attraction,” noted St. Petersburg Area Economic Development Corporation Vice President of Marketing & Communications Anne Core. “Working with our partners at PCED, we helped Daniel and IMT explore the benefits of starting a new business venture in Florida.”
IMT Analytics specializes in developing, manufacturing, selling, and servicing biomedical testing devices for biomedical engineers and health care professionals. The company’s products are designed to perform calibration or verification during preventive or periodic maintenance or repair service.
“I am delighted to welcome Daniel Benz and the IMT team to Pinellas,” Pinellas County Economic Development Director Dr. Cynthia Johnson added. “Our team works tirelessly with partner organizations like the St. Pete EDC to foster a collaborative approach to business recruitment because we know that working together greatly increases our mutual chances of success. Pinellas County offers an excellent and unique blend of robust biomedical industry, substantial infrastructure, and superb quality of life and it’s very fulfilling to see a trailblazing innovator like IMT Analytics select our location as the best fit for its U.S. expansion. We look forward to helping the company succeed and grow in our Ideal Business Climate.”
