Obamacare couldn’t possibly derail this…
Good news for Western Pennsylvania:
A fast-growing manufacturer of components for medical devices and surgical instruments is expanding its business with a new operation in Cranberry.
Cadence Inc., based in Staunton, Va., said it will build a “clean-room” assembly area in leased space in the Cranberry Business Park.
The facility is expected to open during the first quarter next year and eventually employ about 60 workers. With special air-handling equipment and procedures, a clean room is used to assemble and package sterilized medical equipment.
“Pittsburgh was chosen for Cadence’s newest facility because of the availability of employees with specialized medical device knowledge and experience,” the privately held contract-manufacturing company said in a statement.
That’s nice to hear. I sure hope the Obamacare surtax on medical devices doesn’t kill this company before they get a chance to create some jobs.
Obamacare: bending the
cost employment curve down.
