BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C.–MED-ALLY, a privately-held medical device manufacturer, is locating new operations in Berkeley County. The $2.38 million investment is expected to create 90 new jobs.
“We are honored to welcome MED-ALLY, their investment and the 90 technical jobs they offer,” stated Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler. “MED-ALLY’s announcement is also further proof that Berkeley County is open for business, and Berkeley County means business. Through meetings with the company’s team, I am confident MED-ALLY will thrive in Berkeley County and also be incredible partners in job creation opportunities for many years to come.”
MED-ALLY is an innovative design, development and manufacturing company specializing in active implantable medical systems. The company has designed and developed VersaStim® neuromodulation platform technology, which treats patients with movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries.
The VersaStim® technology platform is available in external and implantable systems for clinicians to maximize therapy effectiveness and improve patient outcomes.
The company’s state-of-the-art, 10,000-square-foot manufacturing operation will be located in the Charleston International Manufacturing Center at 2040 Bushy Park Road in Goose Creek, S.C. An ISO Class 6 Clean Room, critical for the fabrication of implantable devices, will take up approximately half of the operating space.
“We’ve been talking with MED-ALLY for some time about the competitive advantages the Charleston region offers, and we’re thrilled our community successfully competed against much larger U.S. metros to attract this implantable medical device manufacturer to locate its headquarters, R&D and manufacturing facility in Berkeley County,” stated Charleston Regional Development Alliance Chairman Will Helmly. “We are proud to welcome MED-ALLY to Charleston’s growing life sciences cluster. They will be a tremendous asset for many years to come.”
