Medical products manufacturer to local North American HQ in Forsyth County

By AccessWDUN Staff

Gant Medical, a manufacturer of disposable medical products aimed at the medical, dental, assisted living, long-term and home care markets, is locating its North American headquarters and manufacturing facility in Forsyth County.

The business-to-business company has secured a 42,000 square foot facility on Shiloh Road in South Forsyth and is expected to create more than 100 jobs in the next five years.

According to a press release from the Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce, the new, 100% “Made in the USA” products will be focused on protecting medical and dental staffs and their patients, as well as assisted living and home-care residents and their caregivers, using a patented design, technology, method and application to prevent cross-contamination.

“Gant Medical is a great fit for Forsyth County,” said Robert Long, Vice President of Economic Development, Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber. “We have similarly situated companies nearby, so there is a talent pool of qualified candidates for key positions that will insure this product’s success."

“The CEO of Gant Medical has been a part of the community for quite some time, so he knows what a great decision Forsyth County is for this new venture,” said Forsyth County Commissioner Dennis Brown, District 2. “Their products are truly innovative, and I’m delighted they chose Forsyth County for their headquarters and first U.S. manufacturing facility.”

The company expects to be in production by January 2019, with the sales and marketing launch shortly thereafter across North American markets.
