Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Northeast Indiana's orthopaedic footprint grew Monday with the opening a new manufacturing center in Fort Wayne.

Great Batch Medical executives were on hand as the 80,000 square feet facility was dedicated.

The $17 million investment is the 3rd project in as many years to open in Indiana. Company leaders say Indiana's business climate and workforce helped secure the latest investment.
