ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) — A Fulton County official says a company that makes medical implants and tools plans to move from there to suburban Indianapolis in the coming months.
The move by Rochester Medical Implants to Noblesville will cost the city of Rochester 28 jobs. Fulton Economic Development Corp. director Terry Lee says company officials attributed the decision to an inability to recruit needed employees to Rochester and better proximity to customers by being in the Indianapolis area.
The Rochester Sentinel reports that a company co-owner had discussed plans for expanding on its eight-acre site in that city.
Lee says some of the company's workers plan on transferring to the new location, with the move expected to happen by October.
