Medical device company moving to Murfreesboro

Michigan company to add 410 jobs to Middle Tennessee health care hub

Medical device company Enovate Medical is moving its operations to Murfreesboro from Canton, Mich., the company announced today.

The company, which merged with Stinger Medical last summer, develops, manufactures and markets mobile clinical workstations and medical devices. Through the move, Enovate will "invest in its headquarters and grow its team," according to a release. Stinger had been based in Murfreesboro prior to the merger.

"This move underscores Enovate's commitment to achieve our long-term strategy and improve competitive position and performance," Nick Mendez, Enovate president and CEO, said in the release. "We will now be able to enhance operational, commercial and technical effectiveness and create greater value for patients, health care providers and other key stakeholders."

The company will create 410 new jobs over the next five years, and expand its headquarters, manufacturing and R&D facilities in Murfreesboro with a $13.1 million investment.

"I want to thank Enovate Medical for investing in our state and creating these high quality jobs for Middle Tennessee," said Governor Bill Haslam, in a release. "The medical device industry is an important and growing part of our state's strong economy, and today's announcement supports our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the southeast for high qaulity jobs."

Mendez (pictured) said the move will provide Enovate a chance to "tap into Nashville's vibrant health care community."

"While there are a number of hospital management, outpatient surgery and health care IT companies based in Middle Tennessee, this will mark the entry of a market-leading medical device player to the scene," he said. "We anticipate tremendous positive contributions to the Middle Tennessee economy."
