TN: Medtronic's Formal Opening of Facility
20 Jan, 2010
Like most things in business, Medtronic Inc.'s new logistics and distribution campus can best be described in numbers:
$65 million investment;
275,000 square feet;
10,000 parts moved every day;
2.5 miles of conveyor tracks;
$40,000 average estimated salary;
five minutes from FedEx Corp. hub;
and 12-14 hours from Memphis to operating rooms around the world.
Medtronic's Swinnea Road expansion is part of the company's five-year plan for greater efficiency and is as "state of the art as it gets," said Chris Cambre, the campus project's manager.
