Medical devices maker Tyber Medical has announced the expansion of its facility in Florida, US, by an additional 33,000ft².

The company’s operations at the Florida facility are set to undergo a significant expansion, effectively doubling in size.

The expansion entails the addition of new manufacturing machines, secondary equipment, and a range of advanced technologies.

It is part of the company’s two-year capital asset expansion plan worth more than $13m.

Tyber Medical manufacturing vice president Ken Lee said: “In a highly competitive market, this is positive, incremental growth in pursuit of providing rapid access to portfolio enhancing, regulatory approved, orthopaedic implants.

“This expansion is good for Tyber Medical’s employees’ career development, its key stakeholders, and of course its growing customer base.”

The expanded area will enable the company to meet its increasing manufacturing requirements.

The move is expected to result in the creation of 50 new jobs in the next two years, while also providing quality orthopaedic products to customers.

Additionally, the expansion will support product launches, specifically in plating and screw technology.

Other benefits to customers include access to additive manufacturing and advanced instrumentation.

Established in 2012, Tyber Medical is a manufacturer of regulatory-approved orthopaedic implants for the spinal, extremity and trauma markets.

The company has so far released more than 50 US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, CE-marked systems for these markets. It is focused on developing technologies to produce advanced orthopaedic implants.

In December 2019, the company opened a state-of-the-art medical device manufacturing facility in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, US.
