As a leading provider of medical device outsourcing solutions, Cadence Inc. is expanding their capabilities by opening a new facility near Pittsburgh. The finished medical device facility in Cranberry Township, PA will be in operation in the first quarter of 2013. The 21,000 square foot facility will include up to 10,000 square feet of clean room space and 5,000 square feet of office space. With as many as 60 potential employees in the new facility, the expansion presents job opportunities on several different fronts.
Cranberry Township is a suburb of Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh was chosen for Cadence’s newest facility because of the availability of employees with specialized medical device knowledge and medical device experience. Pittsburgh was also chosen for its proximity to existing Cadence facilities. Marc Mabie, Vice President & General Manager of the Cadence Pittsburgh facility, said, “The Pittsburgh location has enabled us to put together an experienced and proven team from the medical device industry to expand Cadence’s business. We look forward to continued team growth in 2013.”
After achieving 74% revenue growth in the past three years, Cadence is moving forward with their decision to enter into the finished medical device business. The success of the company began by providing complex components of medical devices, but not finished products. Such a step has always been part of the company’s long-term strategic plan.
“Cadence started as a provider of highly-engineered specialty blades and has evolved into a provider of complex components and sub-assemblies critical to the performance of a variety of medical devices,” said Alan Connor, President of Cadence, Inc. “Medical device customers are looking to consolidate their supply chains around their most critical and trusted suppliers. The addition of finished device and sterilization management capabilities allows us to better serve our customers’ needs.”
