Companies involved in the competitive global medical device market demand a foundation that will fuel their success. NuVasive Inc. has marked West Carrollton as its center of excellence. It is moving rapidly to expand its presence in Ohio and centrally house its global manufacturing in a showcase facility.
NuVasive is a leading medical device company focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally integrated solutions. The company has a mission to optimize patient outcomes and a record of revolutionizing spine surgery. NuVasive has emerged from a small startup to become the No. 3 player in the $9 billion global spine market. NuVasive's Approach to spine surgery reduces the size of the incision as well as the disruption and trauma of traditional surgery.
NuVasive needed a larger facility in which to expand its workforce and develop its existing 90 products and introduce new innovative products. Concluding a national search to center global manufacturing, NuVasive chose the Dayton suburb of West Carrollton for its planned 300+ person manufacturing facility.
Driving NuVasive’s competitiveness in the global health care market required a hi-tech facility to produce its broad product offering. NuVasive built a 180,000-sqare-foot FDA approved manufacturing facility in a location favorable to manufacturing competency. From this location, NuVasive will produce all of its medical implants and other devices for global distribution.
Choosing the West Carrollton location enabled NuVasive to augment an existing skilled workforce from its current facility in Fairborn and also enjoy the support of local, state and private development entities. “We greatly appreciate the support and cooperation of the Dayton Development Coalition and JobsOhio, as well as officials from both Montgomery County and the city of West Carrollton during the site selection process,” said Gregory T. Lucier, NuVasive’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our Ohio workforce is a critical part of our ongoing success, and we are excited to expand our footprint and provide additional opportunities within the state.”
