Portage, Mich.—Stryker Co. recently announced the investment of more than $130 millin to establish a new facility in Portage, Michigan. The company offers a diverse array of products and services in orthopedics, medical and surgical, neurotechnology and spine that help improve patient and hospital outcomes.

The facility will create more than 105 jobs and likely feature a customer experience center, functioning showroom, R&D and bio-skills labs, as well as space for sales, marketing and support functions. As an incentive, the project has been awarded a $1 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. The city of Portage has offered support to the project in the form of property tax abatement, and the Kalamazoo County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority is offering a Brownfield redevelopment incentive.

“In Southwest Michigan, Stryker Corp. is more than a company. It’s a family. I’m so grateful, during this time of year, to see the Stryker family of companies grow by more than 100 people. This local investment speaks to the quality of people, companies and community that call Southwest Michigan home,” Ron Kitchens, CEO of Southwest Michigan First, said in prepared remarks.
