Medical device manufacturer to increase high-wage jobs and invest $500,000 in new facility
TAMPA, Fla. – (July 5, 2017) – Corin, a global manufacturer of orthopedic devices and high-tech solutions to improve surgical procedures, today announced that it will expand its US headquarters in Tampa. The company will up to 100 new high-wage jobs in marketing, operations, sales and other administrative roles and invest $500,000 in its new offices by 2022.
“We are fortunate to have such strong growth, which has enabled rapid expansion of our staff and facilities,” said Paul Berman, president of Corin USA. “Tampa has been and will continue to be a corridor of technological and healthcare innovation, which creates a strong base for talent and collaborative partnerships with other adjacent industries.”
Corin USA is a wholly-owned division of the 34-year-old British medical device company Corin Group LLC, located in Cirencester, UK. Corin USA was established 14 years ago in Tampa and is home to the company’s business activities in the US. Sales, marketing, clinical, regulatory, finance, and operations and logistics groups supporting the sales and marketing of Corin’s medical devices and technologies throughout the US are located at its regional office in Tampa.
Corin USA, which employs 30 individuals locally and over 100 across the US, moved this month from offices on West Cypress Street to 7,000 square feet of new space at 12750 Citrus Park Lane, Suite 120, Tampa, FL 33625.
As a leader in orthopedic innovation, Corin has pioneered a number of landmark developments since its inception in 1985. The company has improved the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of patients across the world through the introduction of its groundbreaking products.
In March 2017, Corin introduced its revolutionary Optimized Positioning System (OPS™) System at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) in San Diego. The technology may lead to one of the most significant changes to the way hip replacements are performed in more than 30 years.
The first-ever functional, patient-specific hip replacement procedures using OPS were performed in the US in November 2016, shortly after FDA clearance. More than 3,000 procedures have been done already in Europe and Australia, where the system was previously approved for use.
“No two patients are the same, so Corin is offering a patient-specific solution that gives the surgeon the information and tools necessary to enable an optimal hip replacement procedure based on each individual patient’s unique anatomy,” said Berman. “Feedback from surgeons who have used OPS has been excellent and interest in the system from the orthopedic community is very high.”
The Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation assisted Corin USA with its real estate property search as well as connections to workforce training programs and expedited permitting services.
“Hillsborough County’s life sciences sector is booming,” said Dr. Ken Atwater, chairman of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation and president of Hillsborough Community College. “The success that companies like Corin are enjoying is elevating our global reputation as an attractive location for others in this industry. Tampa offers Corin a highly skilled talent pool, close proximity to an exceptional international airport, and a business climate that supports their growth. We are proud to partner with Corin as they expand and thank them for bringing more great jobs to our community.”
