Medical group opens manufacturing facility in Aurora
State and local officials Wednesday cut the ribbon on the new, $32 million North American distribution and manufacturing hub in Aurora for Amsino Medical Group.
With support from state and local officials, the global medical and health care products company has established a new 222,000-square-foot distribution center in Aurora that will house all production and distribution of its medical devices and products.
The multi-phase distribution center at 700 Enterprise St. in Aurora will also house a manufacturing facility and is expected to create 110 permanent jobs, officials said.
“As a longstanding leader in the life sciences industry, Illinois has the resources that companies today need to grow and compete in tomorrow’s economy,” said Gov. J.B. Pritzker. “I want to thank Amsino Medical Group for doubling down on Illinois as they expand production of life-saving medical devices for their customers around the globe made right here in Illinois.”
Amsino Medical Group is a medical device producer, manufacturing saline type solutions and other medical devices and supplies. Amsino officials said the new location in Aurora will put them close to customers.
“Amsino Medical Group is thrilled to expand our presence in Illinois as we work to fulfill a growing need for medical device and supply orders seen throughout the pandemic,” said Amsino Medical Group CEO Richard Lee.
“As we move from activating Aurora again, the pandemic paused business operations in many sectors; we are now experiencing Aurora again as we know it,” said Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin. “Amsino’s new headquarters, manufacturing plant and distribution hub are further signs of progress, promise and potential in the City of Lights.”Read More
