Center Valley-based Olympus Corp. of the Americas held a grand opening of its expanded Bartlett campus, including its new National Service Center East and medical asset warehouse/distribution center, in Bartlett, Tenn.

The $12 million, two-story, 110,000-square-foot facility began operations in October and is projected to create about 280 jobs in that region in disciplines such as medical device repair, distribution and management.

The new facility is an expansion to Olympus’ existing research and development and surgical manufacturing building on Appling Road in Bartlett, which has been operating there since 1984.

The company said the expanded campus “marks the beginning of a new era for Olympus by further aligning its medical repair and manufacturing capabilities in one location and positioning the company for long-term growth.”
