Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Medacta USA President Eric Dremel today announced the official opening of Medacta USA’s new headquarters in Chicago. Medacta USA is a subsidiary of Medacta International, a privately held, family-owned global leader in the design of innovative joint replacement and spine surgery products. The 20,000 square foot facility located at 1556 West Carroll Avenue is expected to bring more than 50 jobs to the city, uniting Medacta USA’s operations, product development, sales, and marketing functions together in a city and region known for its deep medical technology roots.
“I am pleased to welcome Medacta International’s new U.S. headquarters to Chicago,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “One of the main objectives of the Plan for Economic Growth and Jobs is to ensure that companies like Medacta see Chicago as the ideal location for new corporate headquarters. This is proof that our efforts to create new jobs and grow the city’s economy are working.”
Medacta USA relocated its headquarters from Southern California to better support the company’s expansion into the U.S. orthopedics market. Since receiving initial FDA regulatory clearances in 2009, Medacta USA has experienced rapid year-over-year growth, and its knee, hip, and spine products have received accolades from surgeons nationwide. The company will continue to innovate with several new product introductions this year.
