New jobs will be in STEM fields and IT 

With growth comes change—and opportunity. In June, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority approved grants in the form of tax breaks for four North Jersey companies that are choosing to remain in New Jersey as their businesses expand. Case Medical is pleased to be named as a grant recipient.

Case Medical started its business in 1992 in New Jersey designing and manufacturing sterilization trays for other medical device manufacturers, customized to their specifications and needs. Since then Case Medical has expanded its product lines to include rigid reusable sterilization containers, case carts, instrument chemistries, and instrument tracking software. Now, we are simply outgrowing our current manufacturing space.

SustainabilityFeature-300x200-1As part of our expansion, we are planning to relocate a large portion of our production from our current space to a 72,000 square foot facility in Bloomfield Township, Essex County, New Jersey. This includes adding more capability, equipment, and jobs. Our plan is to add up to 75 new, high-quality manufacturing and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) jobs over the course of 10 years, qualifying for tax credits under the terms of the Grow NJ economic growth program.

Marcia Frieze, CEO, notes, “The Grow New Jersey grant gives companies like Case Medical opportunities to innovate and expand their operations. Importantly, it provides jobs in STEM fields and IT in New Jersey, creating jobs that provide a living wage for skilled workers, including graduates of the excellent technical and community colleges in this part of the state.”

Case Medical is a unique business that manufactures its products here in the USA, for our customers in both the healthcare industry and manufacturers of surgical implants and devices. Many companies selling products in the same categories manufacture their products outside the US or act as importers or distributors for a variety of other companies.
