Zeus Industrial Products this week announced a multi-million dollar investment to expand its catheter manufacturing capabilities across the globe.
The Orangeburg, S.C.-based company has initiated the first phase of the expansion program at its San Jose, California location, which will extend the facility’s footprint to increase catheter-based designs and manufacturing capacity.
“Our customers depend on innovative thinking, speed, and the latest catheter design and manufacturing technologies to deliver their life-saving products. We want to solidify Zeus’ position as their strategic, long-term partner,” CEO and President Steve Peterson said in a news release.
The company’s San Jose facility will increase by 127% to extend its footprint to 32,000 sq. ft. The expansion will increase the facility’s ISO-certified cleanroom capacity for design, prototyping, validation and manufacturing to more than 7,000 sq. ft total.
Zeus said that its braiding and coiling capacity for catheter-based minimally invasive devices will double, and the expansion will create 15 new jobs this year and more than 50 new jobs over the next two years. New positions will include project engineers, project managers, product builders and technicians.
