Medical device company nearing 250 jobs as it adds shift, workers

A global medical device company moving from West Carrollton to Fairborn has added shifts and about 150 workers with plans to hire more as part of a $45 million expansion.

NuVasive Inc. employs about 150 at the West Carrollton site on Liberty Lane and continues to house about 100 workers at its Herald Square location in Fairborn as it transitions as part of a deal that involved state incentives, officials said Thursday.

“We’re doing so well on our expectations for meeting our plan for our hiring that we’ve added extra shifts,” NuVasive Public Relations Manager said Stefanie Mazur, NuVasive’s public relations manager of corporate marketing.

The top executives of the San Diego-based company – which has advertised the hiring of more than 30 positions in recent weeks – are planning an event in West Carrollton later this month.

It will include NuVasive’s chairman and chief executive officer, and its president and chief operating officer, as well as representatives from Gov. John Kasich’s office, JobsOhio, Montgomery County, the Dayton Development Coalition and city officials, according to the company.

In 2015, the Ohio Tax Credit Authority earlier approved a 65 percent, seven-year job creation tax credit for the move to West Carrollton.
