RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – EG-GILERO, a Morrisville-based medical device manufacturer, plans to invest more than $4 million and create 60 jobs in Chatham County, adding more finished-device assembly to augment its design, development and manufacturing services.
EG-GILERO will renovate a 40,000-square-foot industrial space in downtown Pittsboro.
“We are very excited to be expanding our manufacturing footprint and to be calling downtown Pittsboro our new neighborhood,” said Ted Mosler, president and chief technical officer. “Pittsboro is a hidden gem.”
The company, a contract manufacturer, said it plans to hire engineers, laboratory technicians, operators and other support people to staff the manufacturing facility. The salaries will vary by position, but average $44,317 – more than 20% higher than Chatham County’s average of $36,731.
