Caisson Interventional Expands Facility in Maple Grove, Minnesota

Medical device firm Caisson Interventional plans to expand its facilities in Maple Grove, Minnesota. The company expects to add 50 jobs.

The company, which is owned by London-based LivaNova PLC, said it will invest $750,000 in the building expansion. The new jobs will be created within three years.

As an incentive, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development is supporting the project with a $359,850 grant from the Job Creation Fund. The company will receive the funding once it has met investment and hiring commitments.

“Caisson is developing a minimally invasive implantable heart valve system that has the potential to benefit millions of patients worldwide,” said DEED Commissioner Shawntera Hardy. “The company’s investment in jobs and facilities is helping to grow a medical device cluster that is one of the cornerstones of the Minnesota economy.”

LivaNova PLC last May invested $72 million to acquire a full stake in the company. Prior to the acquisition, LivaNova owned 49 percent of Caisson. Caisson, which was founded in 2012, is developing a heart valve system to replace severely diseased or damaged heart valves that don’t close tightly enough.
