Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation welcomes a tier one orthopedic medical device manufacturing company, Micro Machine, to Warsaw. With the right talent pool and many of the company’s customers located in Kosciusko County, Micro Machine found a property on 4310 Corridor Dr. to be the ideal location for expansion.
Micro Machine is based in Kalamazoo, Mich., and provides precision machined parts for the medical device industry. They have a customer base nationally and with some international.
Micro Machine Company was founded in 1964 by entrepreneur and inventor William Walker, known for his “Walker Downriggers” (used for Great Lakes Fishing) and an electrical surgical knife. The medical device caught the eye of an investment firm, and in 1988 the company was purchased and former owner Larry Dehart was brought on as Operations Manager.
Today the company’s leadership includes CEO Clive Scott, Group Manager of Business Development Tony DeHart, and Group Manager of Engineering JJ Hawley.
The company will install $2,590,000 worth of new manufacturing equipment over the next 60 months. “Kosciusko County has the labor market that we need and further expansion in this area is intended for the future,” commented Tony DeHart. The company will employ a total employee base of 60 in the next 5 years.
Micro Machine has also found a great vendor base in our county and has already brought new business to our orthopedic vendor cluster.
KEDCo is pleased to have Micro Machine join the Kosciusko County, family of companies.
