[Source: The Arizona Republic] – The construction of a $100 million medical campus where new medical products are manufactured has been under way since August in north Phoenix.
W.L. Gore & Associates, a Delaware-based company also located in Flagstaff, is building at 32212 N. North Valley Parkway, near Interstate 17 and Carefree Highway. The business received $30 million in recovery-zone facility bonds from Phoenix in December to help finance the undertaking.
The 100,000-square-foot manufacturing building will create 1,800 construction jobs through winter 2011, when the project is to be completed, said Councilwoman Peggy Neely, who represents the area. About 500 permanent jobs will be filled when the site opens, according to documents the company filed with Phoenix’s Industrial Development Authority.
