Medical device companies cluster in industry hubs to foster increased collaboration and partnerships. The Southeast could soon emerge as the next major hub, an article on the Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry website explains. The region has a low cost of living and offers access to research centers and universities.
I was attracted to the southern charm and hospitality of the region, the weather (although a bit hot and humid in July and August, the rest of the time is pretty nice with mild seasons), the growth opportunities, and value for your dollar. I have seen the number of biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device companies growing pretty rapidly in this area, particularly over the last few years.
