Integrity Implants on Friday will announce plans to bring 150 STEM jobs to Palm Beach Gardens at the grand opening of its new facilities.
Founded in 2016, the life sciences startup focused on building innovations for spinal injuries will hold a ribbon cutting for the 15,000-square-foot headquarters at 354 Hiatt Drive. The company currently has about 50 employees.
The built-to-suit facility will include a laboratory where surgeons can practice implanting the company's products.
Integrity Implants has raised about $40 million in funding since its launch. The Business Development Board of Palm Beach County assisted in its expansion, and has connected the startup with area universities and organizations it can tap to build its workforce, including Florida Atlantic University, CareerSource Palm Beach County, and Palm Beach State College.
The BDB is aggressively recruiting biotechnology companies to set up shop in the region because of their high-paying positions. Bioscience powerhouses including the Scripps Research Institute and the Max Planck Society, as well as surrounding universities, are actively contributing to Palm Beach County's rising reputation as a hub for biotechnology.
