A northern Indiana county official says a company that makes medical implants and tools plans to move to suburban Indianapolis in the coming months.
The move by Rochester Medical Implants to Noblesville will cost the city of Rochester 28 jobs. Fulton Economic Development Corp. director Terry Lee said company officials attributed the decision to an inability to recruit needed employees to Rochester and better proximity to customers by being in the Indianapolis area.
The Rochester Sentinel reported that a company co-owner had previously discussed plans for expanding on its eight-acre site in that city.
Lee said some of the company's workers plan on transferring to the new location, with the move expected to happen by October. Rochester is about 75 miles north of Noblesville.
