Work on the next major piece in the development of Mason's biohealth corridor along I-71 got underway Tuesday.  AtriCure leaders and employees along with city officials held a groundbreaking ceremony for the company's new global headquarters.  CEO Mike Carrel says the new headquarters is significant on several fronts:

  • It gives the company more room to grow and further develop medical devices for treating atrial fibrillation
  • It allows the company to help patients worldwide who have Afib
  • It helps Mason from an economic standpoint and keeps jobs in the U.S. and Ohio

The company is building its 85,000-square-foot headquarters on a 10-and-a-half acre campus in Mason's OakPark District. It's relocating its headquarters with more than 200 employees from West Chester.
Mason's economic development director and port authority executive director , Michele Blair, says AtriCure represents "iterative growth" in the city's bioscience/biohealth district.  She lists companies that are already involved:

  • Seapine Software
  • Festo
  • Fanuc Robotics
  • C.R. Bard
  • Stress Engineering
  • Luxotica/EyeMed

Blair calls AtriCure a "significant move in the right direction."
The company's new headquarters will be completed in late 2015/early 2016.
