Since the beginning of 2012, Great Lakes NeuroTechnologies in Cleveland has increased staff from 14 to 21 full-time employees. The jobs have included software engineering, biomedical engineering, firmware engineering, quality management, accounting, and human resources. In 2012,  the maker of instruments to assess movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease has added over $580,000 in new payroll to Ohio’s biomedical industry, with additional openings at the company still being filled.

“The past year has seen several development projects move forward as well as a growth in our commercial sales,” said Human Resources Coordinator Lisa Halasy. “We’ve recruited talented people to keep up with Great Lakes NeuroTechnologies’ development objectives and market demand.”

As new and emerging markets for their Kinesia technology continue to expand commercial opportunities, the company anticipates continued sales and employee growth.

“We are proud to be a part of economic growth in the Cleveland area that can be driven by biomedical engineering and medical device development,” said President Joseph Giuffrida. “Not only are we positively affecting the lives of people living with movement disorders, we are growing an exciting company and creating opportunities for talented individuals looking to make a difference.”

BioOhio applauds Great Lakes NeuroTechnologies’ commitment to its employees, its state, and the patients who rely on their cutting-edge technology.
