ANNGROVE, Ireland—Medical device manufacturer Stryker has opened an additive manufacturing facility here. The 156,000-square-foot factory could employ up to 600 people.

Stryker uses additive manufacturing to make products to treat bone-related conditions in the knees, hips, shoulder, ankle, skull and spine.

“The new facility and talent will continue to unlock new opportunities that were previously not possible, accelerate innovation globally and further support our mission to make healthcare better together with our customers,” says Viju Menon, group president for global quality and operations at Stryker.
