“The new R&D center will bring our product development teammates into close proximity in a space that will offer the tools and resources needed to create cutting-edge solutions for our healthcare customers,” said John Baumann, president and CEO of Midmark.

The JobsOhio R&D Center Grant was first announced at the June 2016 JobsOhio Board of Directors meeting in Dayton. The facility will house engineering, marketing, product management, commercial leadership and services. The R&D center will also include a customer-focused design and training center to create an interactive learning experience, the company announced.
