SOMERSET, Pa. -- Gov. Tom Corbett praised a local health related business for bringing more jobs back to the area.
Medical device manufacturer DeVilbiss Healthcare, headquartered in Somerset, relocated its production lines back to the USA from China.
"We are building a stronger Pennsylvania where innovative companies like DeVilbiss Healthcare can grow and compete in the global marketplace," Corbett said. "Through our commitment to putting jobs first, we are sending a message to manufacturers throughout the nation and around the world that businesses thrive when they make their products in Pennsylvania."
DeVilbiss Healthcares headquarters is a 152,000 square-foot facility, which houses manufacturing, distribution space, and research and development corporate offices.
What I like to see is they are employing local people, they are from Pennsylvania. We're making it in Pennsylvania, and not only is it being used in Pennsylvania but it's being used around the country and around the world.
DeVilbiss employs about 200 people at its Somerset facility.
