Merit Medical will Hire 75 Workers in Chesterfield Expansion
Merit Medical Systems…a leading manufacturer and marketer of proprietary disposable medical devices…has announced it will spend one million dollars to expand its operations in Chesterfield County. Charles Fishburne reports.
Merit Medical has been in the county since 2004.
Davis: Merit Medical is expanding their production by a one million dollar capital investment and they're adding 75 new jobs.
Will Davis is Director of Economic Development for the county; he says capital investment in the first half of this fiscal year has topped 112 million, compared to 67 million in all of last year.
Davis: You're seeing significantly higher capital investmen, a decrease in unemployment rate and an increase in prospect activity; you've had the groundbreaking of the Gateway to Meadowville, and coming up in December, the groundbreaking of the new Bon Secours facility.
That 30 million dollar medical facility is going in at the Watkins Center.
