AngioDynamics on Hiring Spree at Queensbury Plant After Competitor's Recall
Wednesday, August 17, 2016
One of the region's largest public companies has doubled output at its Queensbury manufacturing location in the past three months.
AngioDynamics has hired 50 workers, brought back a retired supervisor and is looking for 25 more people to help make angiographic catheters used in medical imaging procedures. The company is getting a boost to its revenue after a competitor, Cook Medical, recalled many of its angiographic products.
The manufacturing line making angiographic products had been operating on a single shift but has added more workers for a second shift. That means increasing output did not require a significant capital investment by AngioDynamics.
