Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis-based Vortek Surgical LLC will relocate to Brownsburg, expanding its headquarters, manufacturing and distribution operations and creating more than 60 life sciences jobs in the next three years.

The specialty medical firm plans to invest $10.7 million in a building and machinery, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. announced Wednesday evening. It will lease space in Brownsburg Motorsports Park until its new facility is completed.

Vortek develops and markets medical devices designed to reduce the risk of hospital infections during surgery.

"The global focus on patient safety, infection prevention and efficient delivery of health care services has resulted in ever increasing markets for our current and future products," President Tom Szymczak said in a prepared statement.

Founded in 2006, the company expects to launch a consumer products subsidiary in the second quarter of 2010 to focus on consumer health care products. It plans to begin hiring employees for both divisions beginning in April.

IEDC offered the firm as much as $620,000 in performance-based tax credits and $20,000 in training grants based on its job creation plans. Hendricks County and the town of Brownsburg also will consider additional property tax abatements.
