PHOENIX — Medical technology company Stryker is leasing a new manufacturing building in Chandler that will bring hundreds of new jobs to Arizona over the next few years, the city announced Monday.

The 104,000-square-foot manufacturing building is a $22 million capital investment for the company and a significant expansion of its existing Sustainability Solutions operations within the region, according to a press release.

“Stryker is an internationally recognized leader in medical device manufacturing and we are thrilled to welcome them to Chandler,” Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke said in the release.

The Sustainability Solutions division reprocesses single-use medical devices, which are collected and then inspected, cleaned, tested and sterilized before being repackaged and returned to hospitals for use. More than 20 million devices are reprocessed per year by the company with a 99.98% success rate, the city said, diverting more than 25 million pounds of waste from landfills over the past five years.

Production at the company’s new site is projected to start sometime in the middle of next year and bring more than 280 jobs to the state over the next few years, the city said. New positions include production associates, engineers and technicians.

“We appreciate Stryker’s significant investment in West Chandler and the additional job opportunities this facility will provide to our residents,” Hartke said. “Fortune 500 companies like Stryker can choose anywhere in the world to open a facility like this and we are proud they chose Chandler.”

Brian White, president of Stryker’s Sustainability Solutions division, said in the release the company looks forward to furthering its mission of making healthcare better with the city of Chandler.

“Stryker’s ongoing investment into Arizona, and specifically Chandler, further demonstrates the value we see in this community,” White said.

“We’ve been fortunate to work with many great organizations over the years, which ultimately helped make this expansion into Chandler a reality.”

The company, which offers products and services in orthopedics, medical and surgical, and neurotechnology and spine, made more than $14.4 billion in global sales last year and employed 43,000 people worldwide, according to the official website.
