Medical Device Company Oscor Expands To Palm Harbor, Adds 70 New Jobs

Oscor Inc., a medical device manufacturer that has been increasing research over the last three years, is now expanding to Palm Harbor  and bringing 70 new high-paying jobs to the Tampa Bay region.
 
Pinellas County won out as the location for Oscor Inc.'s expansion over Minneapolis.
 
Oscor not only researches new medical devices, it also designs, develops, manufactures and markets them too. The company produces specialized implantable cardiac pacing leads, venuous access systems and diagnostic catheters, and sells them in more than 35 countries.
 
New medical devices undergoing research include: the Angios Catheters, Adelante Introducers Series, and a new line of interventional coronary and peripheral vascular diagnostic catheters and introducer sheaths.
 
Florida is helping make Oscor's expansion possible using state-funded programs like Qualified Target Industry. This program makes it possible for expansion by offsetting the cost for Oscor.
 
The Governor's Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development, Enterprise Florida, and Pinellas County with QTI help businesses in Florida bring high paying jobs with a high-skill level to Pinellas County. The companies receive tax incentives for every new job created.
 
Pinellas won out because of its central Florida location, the pool of talent in the Tampa Bay region and available facilities.
 
The 50,000-square-feet building picked for the expansion fits Oscor's needs and has a large section of land that the company plans to use for future expansion.
