The Jefferson County Development Authority (JCDA) announces that Randox Laboratories, an Ireland-based company that creates innovative diagnostic solutions for the healthcare industry, will bring 50 high-level STEM-related medical technology jobs to Jefferson County, West Virginia. The expansion has been two years in the making in partnership with the West Virginia Development Office, which this month approved two loans to Randox to aid in the expansion.
"These are exactly the kinds of jobs we want in Jefferson County," said John Reisenweber, Executive Director of the JCDA. "Randox is a leader in its field of medical technology and related products and has a successful track record in Ireland. The JCDA has assembled an impressive team here in the county to assist them with the expansion."
The expansion to the existing medical laboratory, which opened in Jefferson County's Burr Business Park in 2010, is scheduled to begin in 2015 first quarter and will take four months to complete. The renovated facility will include a manufacturing component, a research and development lab, and a diagnostic lab.
Established in 1979, the JCDA facilitates relocations and start-ups, supports existing businesses and works to improve the business climate and create jobs. With a strategic Mid-Atlantic location just 60 miles from Washington, D.C. and ready access to major transportation routes, Jefferson County is ideally situated for business, manufacturing and industry and is a major economic driver in a state that boasts the nation’s fourth lowest cost of doing business.
