CRANSTON – Medical device manufacturer Cadence Inc. broke ground Wednesday on a 34,000-square-foot expansion of its Cranston facility.

The Staunton, Va.-based company is investing $3.3 million in the expansion to “make way for additional precision machining, laser processing and automation equipment,” according to a release.

The expansion, which is expected to be completed by the end of this year, will nearly double the size of the facility, bringing it up to 77,000 square feet.

“Our Cranston facility has quickly become one of the major facilities in the U.S. for precision machining of the most complex parts that go into surgical devices,” Alan Connor, president and CEO of Cadence, said in prepared remarks.

“Much of our Swiss machining equipment now runs ‘lights out’ to keep pace with the growing demand,” said Connor. “We have also added unique laser capabilities that are optimized for fine tube fabrication.”

Last year, the company completed a 25,000-square-foot expansion to its Staunton headquarters and recently opened a facility in Pittsburgh.
