Amsino Medical Group cuts ribbon on $32 million distribution hub in Aurora
The global medical care company Amsino Medical Group established a $32 million distribution and manufacturing hub in Aurora Wednesday.
The 222,000-square-foot distribution center located at 700 Enterprise St. will house all of the company's production and distribution of medical products, according to a news release from the state of Illinois.
"As a long-standing leader in the life sciences industry, Illinois has the resources that companies today need to grow and compete in tomorrow's economy," said Gov. J.B. Pritzker. "I want to thank Amsino Medical Group for doubling down on Illinois as they expand production of lifesaving medical devices for their customers around the globe made right here in Illinois. Not only will their expansion in Aurora create 110 new jobs in the community, it is the latest proof point that we offer the high-quality talent, infrastructure and access to a robust supply chain, which make our state a great choice for cutting-edge companies to expand their global networks."
Amsino Medical Group manufactures saline-type solutions and other medical supplies. Construction on the distribution center and manufacturing facility is expected to create 110 permanent jobs and 30 people have already been hired, the news release said.
Amsino Medical Group is one of 20 life science companies that expanded business in Illinois in 2020, according to the news release. More than 40 manufacturing companies announced company expansions or relocations in Illinois last year, including fiberoptics producer viaPhoton, food inspection company FlexRay and global nutrition company Glanbia.
