Sil-Pro expanding medical device operations, hiring in Delano
ST. PAUL, Minn. — When an industry niche supports 30,000 jobs and $300 million of annual private-sector investment in your state, it’s no time to worry about over-dependence. More like time to double down.
That’s what’s happening in the Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area, whose furthest outskirts in February welcomed an $11-million, 104-job investment in Delano, in Wright County, by St. Paul-based contract medical device manufacturer Sil-Pro.
The silicone and thermoplastic medical devices and components company, supported by incentives from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), plans to add 57,000 sq. ft. to an existing building.
The new jobs will pay an average hourly wage of $19.60 within three years. Sil-Pro has more than 250 workers and a customer base that includes Boston Scientific, 3M and Johnson & Johnson. For career information, click here.
