International medical device technology manufacturer New Deantronics (ND) will establish its U.S. facility in the Spanish Springs Business Center in Washoe County, NV. The 200,000-square-foot research/development and manufacturing facility will also include a medical device incubation center for local medical device start-ups. New Deantronics estimates it will invest more than $40 million for construction and equipment and will generate over 200 new jobs in the Reno-Sparks area.
“The decision to establish an R&D and manufacturing center in the Reno-Sparks area is the result of a multi-year location search and supports our ‘Go Global’ vision,” said Jane Liu, CEO New Deantronics. “The support and assistance received from so many people and organizations here convinced us to select Reno-Sparks to be our new home in the U.S. We hope to be an integral part of establishing a long-term medical device industry infrastructure, bringing together industry, academia, healthcare providers and others benefiting Reno-Sparks and the global medical device community.”
New Deantronics was founded in 1985 in San Francisco, CA and is focused on medical/surgical technology to advance healthcare and quality of life for patients. Its medical device products are widely used in general surgery, neurosurgery, cardiology, orthopedics, and aesthetics.
In addition to opening the 14-acre Greater Reno-Sparks technology campus in 2020, the company currently operates an engineering and manufacturing facility in New Taipei City, Taiwan and will open a second manufacturing facility in Chiayi County, Taiwan in 2019. The Nevada campus will provide R&D, manufacturing, R4R (return for repair), capital equipment exchanges, and a medical device incubation center.
“We absolutely believe the addition of New Deantronics to Washoe County is a strategic choice not only for their business, but for the quality of life it offers their entire team,” said John Slaughter, Washoe County Manager. “Our region continues to attract some of most innovative companies from around the world due to our vibrant landscape and thriving communities. New Deantronics is another great example of our tech industry booming, and we welcome them to Washoe County.”
“With a focus on engineering and innovation, New Deantronics is an example of a high-tech, knowledge-based operation that will contribute quality jobs and global connections to our region. We are very pleased to join in welcoming them to Nevada,” said Mridul Gautam, Vice-President Research and Innovation, University Nevada Reno.
“We are excited that New Deantronics has selected the Spanish Springs Business Center for their new U.S. operations site,” said Mike Kazmierski, President and CEO of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN). “The company’s reputation as a world leader and innovator in surgical and medical device technology is a great fit for our region with the recent growth of advanced manufacturing and tech-related businesses.”
