Arthrex Honored as a Top Job Producer in Florida

Arthrex was recognized as a top job producer in the state of Florida and presented with an award from Florida Governor Rick Scott at the 2012 Governor's Innovators in Business Awards Reception in Tallahassee earlier this week, the company announced Wednesday.

The award recongnizes Arthrex for "outstanding leadership and contributions toward improving and diversifying Florida's economy," which company spokeswoman Lisa Gardiner called "a tremendous honor."

Arthrex is finishing construction on a new 190,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Ave Maria that is planned to employ 250 people when it opens next year, and have 500 workers by 2016.

The company says that Arthrex currently has more than 1,500 employees in Southwest Florida, as well as 700 more in other parts of the United States and overseas. It added more than 230 new, non-seasonal corporate and manufacturing jobs in Florida in 2012.
