Local Company Invests in Tipton County  by Expanding Facility Resulting in Future Jobs

MEMPHIS, TENN.—Brighton company, ProMED Concepts, LLC recently announced plans to expand their medical manufacturing operations by relocating to a larger facility within Tipton County. 

Founded in 2003, ProMED Concepts is a high-technology firm which has both domestic and international customers. Workers produce precision medical parts and equipment which require specialized skills and utilization of state-of-the-art technologies to make high quality products for doctors and hospitals around the globe. High speed broadband telecommunications is needed to meet ProMED customer needs; therefore ProMED is working with Millington Telephone to establish such an infrastructure.

The relocation will increase the company’s square footage from 3,500 to 15,000. The new facility will include a clean room, quality control lab and additional office space. Owner and CFO Carolyn Morrison says, “The new facility is a part of our ongoing plan to improve production while maintaining high quality standards for all of our products. The expansion is key in increasing our ability to control larger-scale production.”

ProMED Concepts’ additional space is also expected to result in an expansion of employment for the company. Over the year following the expansion, owners plan on doubling their workforce. Within three years, they expect to hire up to 30 additional employees. Owner Wade Morrison says, “We are proud to grow our business in Tipton County. Hiring locally is an important part of how we do business and we look forward to continued success here and increasing the economy in our county.”

“ProMED Concepts’ decision to expand its operations in Tipton County is exactly the kind of investment that keeps communities strong,” said Tipton County Executive Jeff Huffman. “We are thankful to ProMED Concepts for its continued investment in our citizens and county, and we look forward to working with them and wish them continued success doing business in Tipton County.”

“This is great news for Brighton and Tipton County,” said Courtney Fee, Tipton County Commissioner. “These new jobs will be the result of a strong relationship between the company and the local community. I’m pleased ProMED Concepts has chosen to deepen its presence in Brighton, and we look forward to working with them toward their continued success in Tipton County.”
